Assistant Principal Global Health
Hi, I am an Assistant Principal for Global Health and Director of the Global Health Academy at the University of Edinburgh. I am involved in a number of inter-disciplinary online training programmes, eg the Masters in Family Medicine run with CMC Vellore, India and ICMDA, the MSc Global Health Non Communicable Diseases and the Certificate in Global Health Challenges.
I am passionate about equitable access to healthcare, especially for those who get left behind by society. Much of my work is in integrating palliative care services into health systems in African and Asian countries, and in increasing healthcare provision at primary care level. I have worked in Government services in international development, in Kenya as a Community Health Advisor, and for the MRC as a Research Fellow in the Department of Psychiatry.
