How Peace Corps Volunteer Reforms Health Care in West Africa - Clara Soh

In Chapter 5 of 10 in her 2010 interview with Capture Your Flag host Erik Michielsen, health economist and comparative effectiveness researcher Clara Soh Williams discusses how her Peace Corps experience in the West African country of the Gambia allowed her to impact a national health care system. Soh's 3-year experience focuses on decentralizing the public health decision-making system. This process involves increasing district health office decision-making capacity around disease surveillance, pharmaceutical procurement and supply chain, and regionally executed mass-immunization and vaccination days. Soh holds an MPA in Public Health Finance from New York University and a BS in Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry from Yale University.
