Co-Editor-in-Chief Child Protection and Practice Journal
M Catherine Maternowska brings three decades of applied research and programming spanning the Americas, Africa and Asia focusing on violence prevention and response, child protection, and sexual and reproductive health designed to improve policy and practice. Her work is underpinned by robust monitoring, evaluation and learning, using innovative and intergenerational methodologies, that focus on influencing and supporting people and communities to contribute to change. Her practice is grounded in public health, leveraging the strength of cross-disciplinary approaches.

She co-founded the Childhood Sexual Violence Solutions Hub a dynamic practitioner-centered platform to build, transform and mobilize knowledge to end childhood sexual violence globally while actively addressing knowledge inequalities between high income countries and low- and middle-income countries. Dr Maternowska is Honorary Professor of Violence Prevention for Young People at the University of Edinburgh and plays an active role on numerous global advisory boards including the Together for Girls Leadership Council, the WHO Implementation Working Group for INSPIRE, the BRAVE a global survivors of childhood violence network and OVUN a network of 40 universities in the global North and South addressing child sexual abuse.
