Research Summary
Thesis summary
When designing and evaluating health policies, there is a particular challenge that often arises - how do we work out the number of people who need healthcare but haven’t received it?  This is often referred to as ‘unmet need’.  Although a lot of data are collected regarding the use of healthcare services, by definition, the people who aren’t receiving the services that they require do not contribute to these datasets.
My thesis will look at the concept of unmet need through the lens of sexual and reproductive health, attempting to ascertain whether we can calculate levels of unmet need across England using the data that we already have available. The overarching aim is to use this data to create an index of unmet need at the LSOA level, which can be used to investigate geographical patterns of inequality within sexual and reproductive health
Teaching Summary

Danielle is the course co-lead for the 'Infectious Disease Epidemiology and Global Health Policy' MSc module at UCL. She also lectures on the 'Concepts and Controversies in Public Health' and the 'Epidemiology and Infectious Diseases' modules at IGH.
