My focus is on gender, health, HIV, violence against women, and rights. I’m particularly interested in work that supports and promotes meaningful involvement and participatory approaches. Recent work includes consultancies for Hivos, ICW Latina, THT, Sophia Forum, CARE and Comic Relief, carrying out research and analysis (literature reviews, surveys, interview-based research), policy and advocacy work, evaluation and assessment, report-writing and editing. Before going freelance in 2008, I had worked for ICW (the International Community of Women living with HIV and AIDS), and ActionAid’s Latin America and Caribbean regional programme. I am from the North East of England and live in London. I speak French (rustily) and Spanish.
