Lydia is a first-year Master’s student in Health Economics, Policy and Management at Karolinska Institutet (KI). After her Bachelor studies in Neuroscience at the University of Nottingham, she continued her studies and obtained a Master’s degree in Medical Law and Ethics at the University of Edinburgh. Following a summer internship in a Doctor’s of the World clinic in Athens, Greece, she was inspired to make a difference in the field of global health after witnessing first-hand the effects of unequal access to basic healthcare for refugees. Upon starting her studies at KI, she was introduced to the work of SOGH in furthering maternal and menstrual health in Uganda, as well as the Dental Health Project based in Sweden. Having a keen interest in ensuring universal access to basic healthcare and gender equality, as well as wanting to be part of an international team, led Lydia to becoming part of the SOGH team in October 2018 as Projects Manager. In this role, she hopes to ensure the smooth-running of the organization and gain valuable experience in the management of an NGO.
