Teaching

Since end 2010, Aniek is Distance Learning Tutor on various modules of the MSc in Public Health and MSc Global Health Policy. Previously, she worked as a Deputy Module Organiser on the distance 'Issues in Global Health Policy' module and a Seminar Lead for the in-house ‘Conflict and Health’ module.

Research

In October 2009 Aniek joined LSHTM as a Researcher. She analysed a cross-sectional study on the sexual and reproductive health of refugees in Guinea, resulting in several publications. She has also been involved in a project on the basic package for health services in Afghanistan, and contributed to a systematic review on the evidence of public health interventions in humanitarian crises. 

Currently, she contributes to a five-year European Commission funded study exploring scaling-up of mental health interventions for Syrian refugees in countries neighboring Syria and in Europe. 

Additionally, Aniek is involved with the King's Centre for Global Health & Health Partnerships (KCGH). In 2011 she obtained a research bursary to develop a research proposal and conduct some preliminary scoping and feasibility work. During that summer she was also part of project that reviewed literature on e-Health in fragile states. Since September 2012 she is leading a research project on the career pathways and experiences of young doctors in Sierra Leone.

 

Previously, she coordinated a research agenda setting exercise for the Thematic Working Group on Health Systems in Fragile and Conflict Affected States (a member organisation part of Health Systems Global). And currently she is working on another research priority setting project, this time on cash based interventions for health and nutrition for the WHO Global Health Cluster.
