Biography at time of Harkness Fellowship: Anatole S. Menon–Johansson, a 2006-07 Harkness/Health Foundation Fellow in Health Care Policy, was previously a post-doctoral research fellow at Stanford University investigating synaptic transmission in hippocampal neurones. He currently is a specialist registrar in genitourinary medicine at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and recently completed a Health Protection Agency/British Association of Sexual Health and HIV Fellowship investigating syphilis in South London. His career and research plans are to utilize informatics and public health skills for the effective delivery of sexual and reproductive health services. Menon-Johansson qualified as a physician from the University of Cambridge.
Project: Menon-Johansson investigated the barriers to effective HIV/AIDS prevention across different populations using an ecological analysis within the United States. He particularly focused on variation associated with geography, state, and socioeconomic and legal status. He modeled HIV/AIDS prevention and related factors using data from the CDC, Kaiser Family Foundation, U.S. Census Bureau, U.S. Supreme Court, and the Beasley School of Law.
