Christopher Schürmann

Former Secretary General

Country: Germany
External title: Research Associate in Bioethics


I am a Global Health enthusiast with a background in medicine, currently working as a research associate in the field of “Ethics in Research Governance and Health Policy”.
My interests are Disaster Risk Reduction, Humanitarian Response, translational Ethics and Health Policy.


The voice of early stage professionals in international discussions is essential and I can only emphasise the vision of the Global Health Next Generation Network to be this voice and to connect and empower the next generation in Global Health.


As Secretary General, I was responsible for the internal team liaison as well as the external representation. I ensured that all our individual and team activities are professionally in line with our vision.
