Ms Alice Witt
BA (Hons) MA
I joined the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in 2020, where I work as a Research Assistant on a study of ethical challenges relating to family planning programming in the Global South. With experience managing SRHR and WASH programmes in southern Madagascar, I am passionate about integrating a sociocultural and gender lens into global health interventions to facilitate effective and culturally sensitive change.
In 2019, I completed an MA in Social Anthropology of Development at London’s School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), where I focused my dissertation on women’s empowerment discourses among organisations committed to the Family Planning 2020 agenda. I also hold a BA in Modern Languages from the University of Oxford, and speak French and Italian in addition to my native English.
