Master's degree in Public Health

University of Aarhus, Denmark

Relevant competences acquired in my master's degree studies 

  • Independently planning and carrying out studies as well as providing pertinent solutions models based on relevant scientific theories and methods for selected problem areas, chosen groups and various context.
  • Participating in the development, organisation and administration of policies relevant to public health and initiating and carrying out collaboration with relevant actors.

I have used the master's programme to shape my skills profile along the lines of the career I am  pursuing in humanitarian assistance and or international development. Following courses like "International Project Management", "International Political Economy" and "International Development Cooperation: Trends, Motives, and Consequences" has broadened and updated my view of the world order and raised my understanding of issues relevant to human and global development. Also, an internship with the Danish NGO Dan Church Aid in Malawi advanced my expertise in the area of development programming including project planning, implementation and evaluation within a resource-constrained environment.

My studies have equipped med with skills to carry out independent research projects as demonstrated by My master's thesis which is a mixed methods research project done in collaboration between Aarhus University and the  Polytechnic University of Malawi. I conducted a qualitative needs assessment and feasibility study centered around the concept of health literacy among HIV-positive youth in Malawi. The project was funded through a travel grant from DANIDA and I spearheaded the entire project with academic supervision. Some of the milestones included developing the research protocol,  applying for grants, applying for ethical approval and executing the field trip, analyzing data,  writing the thesis report and defending the thesis. My supervisors and I are currently preparing to publish the results of my thesis in two research articles and they can vouch for my skills and qualification relevant to conduct the desired research consultancy.

Country representative for the HEALTHday project 

International Medical Cooperation Committee (IMCC) 

 HEALTHday is a health awareness raising event planned by students at Aarhus University. The project is founded on interdisciplinary competence as it engages over 30 students from different faculties study programmes. I have taken part in planning the event since its inception in 2011. I was the national representative from primo 2013 to ultimo 2015. With a yearly budget of over 33.000 USD and drawing over 20.000 visitors yearly i Aarhus, the event is a force to be reckoned with at regional level. Visitors get confronted with health on an eye to eye level where health ceases to be a statistic or something you read about on the internet. Working on this project has developed my team working, communication, fundraising and budgeting skills and leadership skills. I have also had the opportunity to influence IMCC's interdisciplinary orientation by participating in strategic planning meetings at the national level and international meetings under the International Federation of Medical Students' Associations (IFMSA).
