Sara Bylund

External Relations Manager

Sara is studying her last semester at the Master Programme in Global Health at Uppsala University. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Public Health Science. After her bachelor’s, she wanted to continue exploring the field of public health and how to counter inequalities in health, but this time from a global perspective. Sara is passionate about women’s rights, especially in how to end gender-based violence and improving sexual and reproductive health and rights globally. She recently conducted a field study in Tanzania about sexual and reproductive health and rights which developed her interest for this field even further. In the future, she wants to conduct research or work within an organization to reduce health inequalities globally.

Sara joined the SOGH team as an External Relations Manager because she likes to share ideas, create new contacts and to understand different approaches to health. She wants to support SOGH with existing partnerships and to create new ones for the improvement of global health. Through this position, she also hopes to create valuable networks and experiences for the future.
