The Gender Violence and Health Centre (GVHC) would like to thank Dr. Lori Heise for her dedicated and creative leadership in the past years. Dr. Heise has continually offered inspirational guidance to GVHC members, colleagues and students at LSHTM and partners around the world, and we are pleased that, although she is transferring to Johns Hopkins University, she we will remain a part of the Centre.
We are also extremely happy to announce that Dr. Heidi Stöckl and Dr. Ana Maria Buller are taking over as the new Director and Deputy Director of GVHC. Their leadership transition is supported by Professors Charlotte Watts, Lori Heise and Cathy Zimmerman, who founded and led GVHC in the past and will continue their involvement in the Centre’s work.
As the new Director and Deputy Director, Heidi and Ana Maria hope to continue working closely with our current partners, as well as develop new partnerships and continue producing cutting edge evidence to prevent and respond to gender-based violence.
The GVHC thanks everyone for their past support and looks forward to many years of future collaboration with our partners around the world.
