Background

I am a doctor from Kenya currently pursuing a Master of Global Health at the Barcelona Institute for Global Health. I am highly interested in global health governance, health policy, and health systems strengthening.  I have experience in peer education, advocacy on youth engagement and SRHR, event management and training development and facilitation. As I further my career in global health I have come to enjoy writing about global health and sharing knowledge on the current trends within the field especially in my topics of interest. I am constantly on the look on what is and what should be shaking up the global health field. I look forward to exploring and tackling the global health stereotypes, especially about the global south.

This is why I joined GHNGN; To be a part of a platform that provides opportunities where young global health professionals share their experiences and perspectives on global health.
