Gender Equality Policy and Strategy

I am a final year European Social and Political Studies student at University College London, specialising in Geography and French. I am looking to pursue a career in international development and firmly believe that education is key in order to empower women and girls and achieve gender equality.

To better inform my understanding and subsequent writing in this area, I have chosen modules this year which address water and development in Africa, as well as postcolonial geographies of African development. The relevant and specialised information I acquire will aid me in writing the AHO Strategy and Plan of Action on Access to Contraception for Girls and Women.

I am excited to contribute to the fantastic work that the AHO carries out to work towards full health equity.
