PhD in Public Health - Integration of informal healthcare providers in tuberculosis reporting system: A mHealth initiative in India
MPH in Epidemiology
The reason I decided to enrol in a research degree at the School of Public Health and Community Medicine, UNSW was because I was inspired by the UNSW 2025 strategic plan which aims to support researchers to tackle real-world problems. Furthermore, the School of Public Health and Community Health is a leader in Public Health education with a vibrant research and academic environment.
Informal healthcare providers (IPs) deliver a significant proportion of primary care in developing countries, and my study aims to understand feasibility to integrate IPs in TB notification system in India. From a policy perspective, my study findings will contribute to understating the role of IPs in an integrated health system.
I like working on my research project as it fits with my interest. I enjoy connecting with researchers and attending different research workshops and symposiums. The student community is diverse and rich, offering endless opportunities to learn from teammates.
