anthony zwi

Professor Anthony Zwi is keen to build links between humanitarian relief and development organisations and academic institutions. He works on global health and development policy and related international aid issues. He has interests in injury and violence as public health problems. He heads a team which explored how health-related interventions in countries which have experienced disasters and wars could be more sensitive to culture, conflict, and to rebuilding trust and social cohesion. He and colleagues work on the ethics of research in conflict-affected settings, and the role of service providers and community members, including young people, in shaping and influencing research and responses to violent political conflict.
