This weekend, our master’s students in global public health and public health at Karolinska Institutet embarked on exciting journeys to Uganda, Benin, Malawi, and Tanzania for their thesis projects. For many of them, this opportunity to conduct research abroad is an adventure that marks the beginning of their passion for global health. Collaborating with ALERT members as supervisors, they will collect and analyze data, making valuable contributions to our project.
On Sunday, Zuhaira Husna Fatma, a medical doctor originally from Indonesia, arrived in Kampala, Uganda. In the photo, she is seen meeting her supervisor, Dr. Elizabeth Ayebare, for the first time at Makerere University.
“I’ve had the chance to meet my supervisor, and we’ve discussed the plan for my thesis project in Jinja. She’s an incredible person, and I’m thankful for the opportunity to meet her and learn from her,” says Zuhaira.
Ira’s thesis project is titled: What facilitates the use of various birthing positions? A Qualitative Study on Maternal Health Providers’ Perspectives in Ugandan Healthcare Facilities.
Good luck wishes the whole ALERT team!
