Rohan Singh

Co-Head of Policy

My name is Rohan Singh and I am a 3rd-year medical student at the University of Liverpool. I am contributing author to the expert report on Child health inequalities for the UK Covid Inquiry. I developed a deep passion for global health after an experience running public health workshops in rural Fiji, where I witnessed firsthand the impact of healthcare disparities in underserved communities. Now, I am eager to collaborate with like-minded stakeholders to shape evidence-based policies that address global health challenges and promote equitable access to healthcare worldwide.

I am a medical student at the University of Leeds, currently intercalating in MSc public health at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. I have been part of Polygeia for the past four years in the Leeds and Cambridge branches. Having thoroughly enjoyed those years, I am keen to be part of the further development of Polygeia. More specifically, I am excited to help foster a supportive environment in which students with a passion for global health can tangibly contribute to global health efforts and develop interest and skills. I have a particular interest in humanitarian emergency responses, using health as a tool for development, and policy formulation.

I am a 4th year medical student at the University of Ibadan, Nigeria. I have interest in the improvement of health outcomes for mental illness in low-resourced countries using social and behavioral health approach - global mental health. I have been a part Polygeia for over 15 months- a researcher, branch editor, and co-head of training now. And I think Polygeia have solid working model for engaging budding global health researchers in quality research project. Working collaboratively with co-head of training, I will improve the capacity of Polygeia researchers by working local branch training officers and attending to queries about research methods.
