Anja Zinke-Allmang is a research assistant at LSHTM in the department of Global Health Development. She completed her MSc in Reproductive & Sexual Health Research at LSHTM in 2018/2019 and completed her research thesis on the covariates of sexual satisfaction within the UK population using the NATSAL-3 dataset. Prior to working at LSHTM, she worked with an intersectional lens to increase access to mental and sexual health services among marginalized populations and promoted positive sexual health messaging in Canada. She provided front-line care in addition to evaluating and redesigning mental and sexual health programs to increase accessibility.
Anja currently co-leads seminars on the Sexual Health module at LSHTM.
Anja’s research focuses on various topics within sexual health including sexual satisfaction, social norms around family planning access and use and ethical family planning provision. Her current projects include: A multi-layered project examining ethics within the family planning community and a behavioural trial being held in Kenya about how various formations of online communities influence the diffusion of norms around family planning from online to offline environments.
With her extensive background working with marginalized persons in various settings, her other research interests include examining social norms more broadly as they pertain to sexual behaviours and sexual pleasure. She is also interested in examining mental and sexual health within the larger framework of holistic wellness.
