Tim Shand

Tim’s research interests are in gender and health, and in particular on understanding ways to better respond to men’s specific sexual and reproductive health (SRH) needs, and to increase their support for the SRH of others.  His doctoral work focuses on Malawi, where he has co-ordinated quantitative and qualitative research looking at men’s SRH attitudes and practices. Tim holds a Masters in Public Health from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and has taught in the UK, Netherlands and South Africa. He is a part-time PhD student at IGH, and works at Georgetown University's Institute for Reproductive Health, co-ordinating a multi-country initiative seeking to shift social and gender norms to promote adolescent SRH. Tim has previously worked with Sonke Gender Justice in South Africa, the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), and the World Health Organisation. He has published in a range of publications and books.
