    PROFILE

    I studied cultural anthropology at the University of Amsterdam, where I received my PhD in 1989. After carrying out ethnographic studies on food taboos during pregnancy in India, local explanations of illness and misfortune (in particular relating to kwashiorkor) in Cameroon, and euthanasia decisions in the Netherlands, I spent eight years in Tanzania and Uganda carrying out research relating to HIV/AIDS. This was followed by five years as senior lecturer at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, where I coordinated the medical anthropology course and carried out research on the sociocultural aspects of malaria in Tanzania, The Gambia and Mozambique. From 2006-2013 I was research professor in medical anthropology at the Barcelona Centre for International Health Research (CRESIB), where I led two large multinational projects involving research in several African countries and Papua New Guinea on the sociocultural aspects of malaria prevention in infants and during pregnancy, both part of large multi-disciplinary collaborations. I also coordinated the social science component of an international programme to develop and test microbicides for HIV prevention.

    I joined the University of Amsterdam in 2010 as Professor of Social Science and Global Health and co-director of the Centre for Social Science and Global Health. Since 2014 I have directed the Health, Care and the Body Research Programme Group and I am currently acting Chair of the Anthropology Department. I also direct the Long-Term Care Partnership, a collaborative programme bringing together academic researchers, care providers and policy makers ( http://partnershipforcare.uva.nl/).

    Other recent projects have focused on migration and health, developing sustainable community resources for health in Uganda, and (as co-investigator) the socio-historical development of laboratory diagnostic services in West Africa.

    CURRENT RESEARCH PROJECTS (as principal investigator):

    CoHeRe (Developing Sustainable Community Health Resources in Poor Settings in Uganda). (NWO/WOTRO)

    It has been argued that the practical knowledge and effective interventions needed to reduce priority health problems in low-income countries are available, but that they do not adequately reach poor and vulnerable populations. One solution is the use of community health workers. So far, however, the development of sustainable reward systems for CHW's has failed. In response to this, this Programme seeks to answer the question: Can social roles, networks and groups be identified in poor and vulnerable communities in Uganda that could serve as a source of basic health information, skills and behaviours, and link vulnerable community members to existing healthresources? Programme involves transdisciplinary research capacity building in Uganda.

    Sociocultural issues relating to the acceptability and implementation of prevention and treatment options for malaria in pregnancy in Malawi, Ghana, Kenya and Papua New Guinea. (Gates Foundation)

    This programme of social science research forms part of the Malaria in Pregnancy Consortium, which aims to better understand the burden of malaria in pregnancy, evaluate which of the new generation of antimalarial drugs can be used safely and effectively for the treatment of pregnant women with malaria, identify safe alternative antimalarials for the prevention of malaria in pregnancy, and establish the best way to increase the coverage and utilisation of existing strategies to control malaria in pregnancy.

     

    CURRENT RESEARCH PROJECTS (as co-investigator):

    SociaLab (Addressing Social, Cultural and Historical Factors Limiting the ontribution of Medical Laboratory services to antenatal care in Mali). (NWO/WOTRO)

    The key theme of this programme is the organisation and delivery of essential and quality health services. The specific focus is to barriers impeding medical laboratory services and how this undermines the quality of antenatal care (ANC) in sub-Saharan Africa. Barriers to medical laboratory disproportionally undermining its workforce exist at all levels of the Health System. They comprise important yet unrecognized human and country-specific determinants and may relate to the poor integration of laboratory services and workers within the health system. A sub-theme on social, cultural, historical and global influences shaping the decision-making process of policymakers towards medical laboratory will be developed. These themes were selected given the pivotal yet unfulfilled role of laboratory medicine in ANC.
