Research interests and activities

Johanna teaches postgraduate papers in PUBH 738 Global Health Law and Ethics and PUBH 742 Global and International Health Systems. She also teaches health systems to fourth year medical students, and convenes an Introduction to the New Zealand Health System as part of the Department of Public Health's annual summer school.

Johanna works freelance in the health sector, and has experience working for the WHO, for a range of institutions in the New Zealand Health System. She trained as a lawyer and has worked in various roles in service contracting, planning, evaluation and programme management in DHBs.

Johanna enjoys working in public health because it allows her to combine her various interests in language, cultures, law and governance under one disciplinary umbrella.

Research interests include:

  • Governance at the systems interface between primary care and public health
  • Research methodologies, evidence and evaluation for innovations in primary health care
  • Prioritisation of health systems and resources
  • The impact of school uniform design and policy on health and educational outcomes.
