Abby Somerville
Trustee

Abby has a MSc in international development and a background providing emergency medical care in the USA, screening for surgical ophthalmic care in Madagascar, and coordinating a surgical safety course in Senegal.  She is interested in the role of non government organisations in health systems strengthening in low income countries, particularly through investment in health workers.  She spent time in Malawi in 2017 for her research on strategies for health worker retention.  She hopes her experience and skills can help further Medic to Medic's work.
