Abi Deivanayagam


I am a medical doctor and associate researcher at the Institute of Health and Society, Newcastle University. I graduated from Newcastle University medical school and from UCL with a Masters in Philosophy, Politics and Economics of Health. I am passionate about the intersection of the human right to health, universal health coverage and global health governance. My main research interests are affordability within health systems and global health education. I enjoy teaching on the right to health, health systems and policy. This stems from my passion to ensure that all medical students are prepared to be the global doctors with the social responsibility that is required in today's world. Most of my experience is working within student organisations Students for Global Health (formerly Medsin-UK), and the International Federation of Medical Students’ Associations (IFMSA) on global health policy and advocacy. I am also a keen advocate of the climate crisis movement.
