MSc Sexual & Reproductive Health Policy and ProgrammingContact Sara Mengistu
Educational/ Professional background
I am a healthcare professional holding a BSc and a master's degree in public health with experience in clinical work, managerial roles, and medical research.
Research interests/Career goals
As a woman born and raised in a developing nation, I grew up witnessing the roots of gender inequality. I want to apply my knowledge and skills to come up with evidence-based solutions to tackle sexual and reproductive health problems involving key population groups such as women, adolescents, people with disabilities, and ethnic minorities.
Why I chose LSHTM
I have always been passionate about fields related to sexual and reproductive health and I wish to pursue a career in that path. I have known the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine as one of the best public health institutions globally and it has been a great honour to be selected to be part of the MSc Sexual & Reproductive Health Policy and Programming.
