Johanna Hanefeld

Lecturer Health Systems Economics, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine

I am a Lecturer in Health Systems Economics in the department of Global Health and Development focusing on trade and health, health systems, governance, human rights and quantitative and qualitative policy analysis mainly in low and middle income countries. I work as part of the policy group and am also affiliated to the Health Economics and Systems group (HESA).

My background is fairly diverse: I did a PhD in policy analysis at the School, supervised by Gill Walt. Prior to my doctoral research I worked on HIV and AIDS, initially for the Panos Institute based in Zambia and then as researcher for Amnesty International. I have been a technical officer and advisor for WHO EURO on social determinants of health and health equity.

Together with colleagues from the University of York I recently completed an NIHR funded research project, which examined the impact of medical tourism and migration on the UK NHS.
