Stanley is a trained medical doctor (University of Amsterdam) with extensive health experience in resource-constrained settings. He has a Masters in Public Health for Developing Countries (LSHTM, UK) and a PhD from Ghent University (Belgium) on opportunities for targeted HIV prevention among most-at-risk populations.
He holds honorary academic positions at the School of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine, Monash University (Adjunct Associate Professor), University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa (Visiting Professor) and Ghent University, Belgium (Visiting Professor).
In early 2012 Stanley joined Burnet as Principal for Sexual and Reproductive Health and as Team Leader for the Women’s and Children’s Health working group in the Centre for International Health.
From 2004 until 2008, he was based in Mombasa, Kenya, employed by Ghent University, Belgium as the Kenya Country Director of the International Centre for Reproductive Health (ICRH; a locally-registered NGO with close links to Ghent University and a WHO collaborating centre for reproductive health). In this capacity, he was responsible for the overall management of the research NGO, including around 100 full-time personnel. This also meant leading the fundraising, proposal development, scientific planning and implementation of sexual and reproductive health research, training and services.
In 2008, he took the position as the Deputy Director at the ICRH headquarters at Ghent University supervising and coordinating the Belgium-based research teams as well as the field teams in Kenya and Mozambique.
Over the years, he has gained particular experience in implementation, conduct and supervision of research and program interventions on maternal and child health, sexually transmitted infections and HIV, family planning, alcohol use and sexual behaviour.
Since 2004, he has been the Project Supervisor on several large service-delivery type interventions and the Principal Investigator of more than 10 clinical, epidemiological, behavioural and operations research studies with the full-range of study designs.
Currently, he is (co-) author of more than 110 publications in peer-reviewed journals and was the technical writer of the 2010 guidelines on “Antiretroviral drugs for treating pregnant women and preventing HIV infection in infants: toward universal access”, published by the World Health Organization.
