Expert commentators

Prof Sophie Harman
I conduct research in the global politics of health and development. I specialise in the international politics of actors involved in governing global health from the World Bank to UN agencies to private philanthropists such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation; how they interact with each other and the states and civil societies they are said to support. I am interested in how health financing and interventions are used as broader tools of political reform, particularly in countries in sub-Saharan Africa.
