Member of “Haut Comité de Santé Publique”
My research is mainly focused on the relationship between the social context – living conditions, employment status, working conditions, poverty, specific behaviours … – and perinatal health in France. I have also worked on the violence against women, in general and during pregnancy. Finally, another of my research subjects is the health status of men and women who have sex with same sex partners.
