Andrew Gibbs is a researcher with the Gender Equality and Health Programme where the main focus of his research is around masculinities, gender-based violence and young people’s sexual and reproductive health. His specific interests include understanding how interventions work, particularly structural and economic interventions, and how contextual factors shape intervention outcomes. More widely he has done extensive research on understanding gender equality within policies and policy processes. He has written over 20 articles on these topics in a range of leading journals including PLoS Medicine, AIDS and Behavior, and Social Science and Medicine.

Andrew has been involved in leading the Stepping Stones and Creating Futures intervention amongst young women and men in urban informal settlements to reduce violence and HIV risk through building gender equality and strengthening livelihoods. As part of this body of work he wrote the widely cited article Combined structural interventions for gender equality and livelihood security and published widely on the impact of the Stepping Stones and Creating Futures intervention on men’s lives and masculinities, which forms the basis of his PhD thesis.

He was awarded an MSc in Health, Community and Development from the London School of Economics in 2006.
