Xuemei Zhang

PhD Candidate

A domestic health emergency event after completing her bachelor's degree in law, led Xuemei to pursue further studies in the health profession. She completed her Master’s Degree in Public Health from the University of Queensland after earning a Master’s Degree in Social Medicine and Health Management and a Law Degree at Soochow University.

Xuemei 's  interest in NCDs was piqued by personal experience  and a realisation chronic disease is a global epidemic,  contributing to a massive disease burden, particularly in low-and middle-income countries.

Xuemei 's research “The health and economic burden of non-communicable diseases and multimorbidity in LMICs,” will investigate how people choose treatment when they have several chronic diseases. Xuemei 's PHD study will further develop an understanding of the health and economic burden of multimorbidity in LMICs, provide policy considerations
