Dr. Amy Barnes


Back to staff list

Amy joined ScHaRR in December 2010 as a Lecturer in International Health Policy and Management. Her research has focused on global health governance, participation, partnerships and aid management. She has studied the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, and has also explored the way in which Sector-wide Approaches (SWAps) for health and budget support reshape health systems (working particularly in Zambia). Amy is currently working on a project looking at the role and participation of African actors in global health policy.

Amy has become increasingly interested in issues of participation, health inequalities, social justice in the UK and internationally, as well as the way in which evidence is interpreted, valued and applied in policy processes. Her work is at the disciplinary interface between public health, public policy, management development studies and politics. Before embarking on her academic career, Amy worked at one of the UK Research Councils and at Imperial College London in management, where she spent time working for the Schistosomiasis Control Initiative.
