Pamoja Communications was founded by Gavin Stedman-Bryce and Kate Hawkins in 2011 and has its main office in Brighton, United Kingdom.
Kate has worked with multilaterals, bilateral donors, researchers and the non-governmental sector on policy related issues. In recent years she has had more of a focus on research communications and the process by which evidence is translated into policy and practice.
Through Pamoja Kate supports organisations like the ReBUILD Consortium and the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine to strengthen their communications and research uptake work. She also works with non governmental organisations on advocacy and the creation of plans and products that will influence policy.
Kate has a first degree in Social Psychology and a Masters in Human Rights. She has worked as a Creative, a Policy Manager, Communications Officer and Researcher in a diverse range of organisations. She is a Visiting Fellow at the Institute of Development Studies and a member of the Board of The Pleasure Project.
A public health professional with over 14 years’ experience in programming, evaluating and commissioning public health services, Gavin has made a notable contribution to health policy and practice. His passion to normalise HIV testing and reduce the huge numbers of people in the UK who do not know their HIV status led him to pilot the introduction of universal rapid HIV testing into primary care.
Through Pamoja Gavin now supports organisations like the NHS, the YMCA, the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, the International HIV/AIDS Alliance and Oxfam to evaluate and improve their social impact programming in the UK and worldwide.
Educated in microbiology and with post graduate qualifications in global development management and public health, Gavin is committed to working in partnership with organisations, people and communities towards better quality of life for all.
