Andrew Lee

Reader in Global Public Health, University of Sheffield
I qualified in medicine from the University of Edinburgh. Following paediatric and tropical medicine training, I then worked overseas running primary health care and tuberculosis control programmes in Afghanistan. I am dual trained in general practice and public health in the UK, and have previously worked as a Public Health Consultant in Nottingham City. I joined the Section of Public Health in February 2008 and am a part time Reader in Global Public Health. I was previously a Consultant in Communicable Disease Control at Public Health England, and currently also work as a primary care director with a local NHS organisation.

My research interests are in the field of health protection (disaster response and emergency planning, control of communicable diseases), international health as well as health service management.

I teach on global health issues, humanitarian aid, health service management and communicable disease control. I currently lecture on international health needs assessment, disaster planning and impact evaluation on the MPH course. I also developed and teach on three MPH modules: Communicable Disease Control, Leadership and Management in Health, and Disaster and Emergency Management. In addition, I teach on the undergraduate medical programme, and on the Executive MBA programme at City College, Thessaloniki, Greece. I have worked as a trainer on orientation courses for relief workers, and delivered training to healthcare workers abroad as well as to health professionals in the UK.
