Professor Heidi Stöckl is a Professor of Public Health Evaluation in the medical faculty of the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich, Germany. She has more than 20 years of experience in researching the epidemiology of intimate partner violence, violence-related mortality and human trafficking, including studies on the prevalence and health effects of intimate partner violence among the general population, pregnant and older women, the global prevalence of intimate partner homicide and perpetrators of child homicide, trafficking for sexual exploitation and forced marriage in Uzbekistan and China. Heidi’s research mainly consists of large scale survey data analysis and evidence synthesis, and her primary research has included a randomized control trial in South Africa, cross-sectional surveys, penal file analyses, and qualitative and methodological work in sub-Saharan Africa, Asia and Europe. She is currently running the first longitudinal study among adult women on intimate partner violence in sub-Saharan Africa with four waves of data collection to explore the predictors and consequences of intimate partner violence, a qualitative study on perceptions and conceptualizations of sexual harassment in Tanzania, and formative work through adaptive programming to develop an intervention addressing sexual violence among adolescent boys in Nigeria. Heidi conducted the first prevalence study on intimate partner violence during pregnancy in Germany.
