Dr Kayli Wild has co-authored an article in the Women and Birth Journal, entitled Responding to violence against women: A qualitative study with midwives in Timor-Leste.
The research explores the barriers and enablers that midwives report in responding to domestic and sexual violence in Timor-Leste, a country with a very high rate of violence against women. The aim is to inform a systems approach to health provider training and engagement applicable to Timor-Leste and other low-resource settings.
Kayli was awarded an Australian Research Council (ARC) Discovery Early Career Research Award (DECRA) to examine health sector responses to violence against women in low-resource settings (2017-2019). Kayli is an ARC DECRA Fellow with the Judith Lumley Centre and the Institute for Human Security and Social Change, and is a Senior Research Fellow with the Judith Lumley Centre.
