Ms Alyssa Thurston
for HBCC Evaluation
I am currently working on the evaluation of the Hygiene Behaviour Change Coalition for COVID-19 prevention, a £100m Unilever/FCDO-led multi-partner campaign to fund hygiene intervention programme in 37 low and middle income countries. I am primarily interested in research related to WASH and violence against women and girls in emergency and disaster contexts.
Prior to the School, I worked with international organisations and UN agencies in the fields of disaster management and conflict-related violence. My experiences span programme design and management, training development, and supporting the implementation of the Sendai Framework and related government policies, primarily in the Asia Pacific region. I have an MSc Public Health from LSHTM and a BSc Biology and International Relations from the University of British Columbia.
