About me

Juliet Bedford founded Anthrologica in 2008. Juliet is recognised as a leader in the application of anthropology in global health and has extensive experience designing and managing complex qualitative and mixed-methods research and evaluations. She has over 18 years technical experience in developing contexts, fragile states and emergency settings and has worked extensively across Africa, South and Southeast Asia.

Juliet’s expertise focuses on the interface between the provision and uptake of health services in resource-constrained settings, and in the pre-positioning and application of social science intelligence in emergency and humanitarian contexts. She also serves on the Strategic Technical Advisory Group for Infectious Hazards (STAG-IH), advising the Health Emergency Programme at the WHO. Juliet holds a Doctorate in Anthropology from the University of Oxford, where she was a Research Associate at the Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology, and is currently an Adjunct Professor at the College of Global Public Health at New York University.
