Miss Caroline Adjimi Nyemgah
Research Degree Student
15-17 Tavistock Place
My background includes social sciences and Health related courses. After earning a BA in Psychology and a MA in social work in the USA from 2012 to 2017, I went back home in Cameroon where I worked in a program related to street adolescent girls reinserting them.
I am now beginning a PhD on gender-based violence during pregnancy in African contexts. I will research Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) in adolescent and young women during pregnancy, risk factors, health outcomes, community responses, and available resources in African contexts. I aim for this research to raise awareness and educate women about their rights, and to create safe havens in response to violence where women can share their experience and access help without fear of retaliation from their partners.
