Dr Andreas Papamichail is a Teaching Fellow in Global Health at the King’s Centre for Global Health and Health Partnerships. He holds a PhD from the School of International Relations at the University of St Andrews. His PhD is entitled “Structural Violence and the Paradox of Humanitarian Intervention”, and examines the ethical implications of humanitarian intervention from a critical and dialogic cosmopolitan perspective. Before his PhD, he completed a BA in International Relations, and an MA in Global Politics and Law, both at the University of Sheffield. Since 2012, Andreas has worked as a consultant for the Regional Network on Equity in Health in Southern Africa and the Training and Research Support Centre, on several projects focusing on health in eastern and southern Africa, including on: the use of performance-based financing for healthcare; the role of BRICS countries in south-south cooperation for healthcare; and the impact of the extractive industries on health. Outside of this regional focus, he has also contributed to work on learning from primary healthcare practices in high- and middle-income countries, and on African responses to the Ebola outbreak in 2014. Andreas is the iBSc in Global Health course lead, and co-leads on the Poverty & International Development and Conflict & Health modules. In addition, he contributes to the Health Systems & Policy module and coordinates the Global Health Student Selected Component course.
