Article on PrEP & 'lifestyle stigma' published at BMJ Open

My research with Leticia Bode and Jessica Ng is now out in BMJ Open—the article is open access for all to read and share. In this article, by comparing support for government-funded preventive treatments for HIV, HPV and type 2 diabetes, we assess whether public attitudes on healthcare spending are broadly sensitive to ‘lifestyle stigmas’. Stay tuned for more work from this project!

New publication on GONGOs in Journal of Civil Society

My latest published work now appears in the latest issue of Journal of Civil Society (Vol. 15, No. 3). With collaborators Jennifer Hsu and Reza Hasmath, the article offer a first-of-its-kind conceptual framework for identifying and understanding government-organised non-governmental organisations (or GONGOs). The article is available in its published form for those with institutional access or individual subscriptions; an accepted version of the paper is open access for all as an e-print at LSE Research Online.
