Specialisation: Health, gender, sexuality, social inclusion, education
Peter Aggleton has a background in sociology, policy studies, education and health. A UNSW Scientia Professor, he is well known for his analytic work on health education and health promotion, the social aspects of HIV, sexuality and gender, and sexual and reproductive health and rights.
He is the editor-in-chief of the international peer reviewed journals: Culture, Health & Sexuality, Health Education Journal and Sex Education, and an associate editor of the journals AIDS Education & Prevention, Global Public Health and Health Education Research.
He has worked closely with national, international and UN system agencies for over twenty-five years to strengthen international and national responses to HIV and sexual health. His position in the Centre for Social Research in Health at UNSW extends appreciation of the ways in which HIV and sexuality sit within the broader field of politics, national and international development, education and sexual health.
In Arts and Social Sciences more generally at UNSW, he participates in a major strategic initiative on practical justice.
