The Kirby Institute

As a midwife and public health researcher, Lisa has more than 20 years’ experience working in low-resource settings, including Papua New Guinea, Tanzania, Kenya and Zambia.

Her current program of research is based primarily in Papua New Guinea (PNG), where she established a multidisciplinary maternal and child health research program at the PNG Institute of Medical Research in Goroka (2010-15). Her program of research has included access to care during pregnancy and childbirth; unsafe abortion; teenage pregnancy; STIs in pregnancy and an intervention to support clean birth practices and reduce the risk of postpartum haemorrhage among women who give birth in remote, rural communities. Her work led to a world-first cluster randomized crossover trial of antenatal point-of-care STI testing and treatment to improve birth outcomes in high-burden, low-resource settings, for which she is a chief investigator.

Through an ongoing academic position at the PNGIMR (2015-date), she continues to lead field studies and intervention trials to improve maternal and newborn health outcomes in Papua New Guinea.
