Professor Andrew Tomkins OBE
After postgraduate training, Andrew worked in a new medical school in Nigeria, establishing new management regimens and collaborative research on the interaction of infection and nutrition in children. After research training in nutrition at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Andrew worked in the MRC units in Malumfashi, Nigeria and the Gambia. Subsequently his research team established a range of applied research and training projects in resource poor countries, based at the Centre for International Child Health (now the Institute for Global Health) UCL London. Andrew has assisted UNICEF, WHO, the World Bank & national governments in the development of their child health and nutrition programmes. Andrew worked with Tearfund UK and overseas partners to develop church-based programmes for prevention, treatment & care of disease. He is now “retired” but does not know how to do it and is presently supporting programmes in northern Nigeria, Ethiopia, South Sudan & Zambia.
