Lekha Rathod – Global Health Researcher and Physician

In this third episode of Planetary Health Talks, we talk with Lekha Rathod, a young global health researcher and physician with experience in primary and emergency healthcare in low- and high- resourced settings, and chair of the Planetary Health working group of the World Medical Association's Junior Doctors Network. Lekha was also world medical association delegate and represented UMC Utrecht at the COP27.

We talk about the slums in Mumbai, infectious diseases in refugee camps in Lesbos, decolonizing global health, equity in health access and how research from some parts of the world does not get as much attention as it deserves.

How do we expand the movement of planetary health? What would Lekha do, if she was secretary general of the United Nations for one year? Lekha is going to conquer the world, mark our words!
