Sara joined the Nossal Institute in 2018 following a position in Timor-Leste with the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons. Sara has over six years of experience implementing and evaluating global health programs across the Asia-Pacific region, and has also worked in South Africa for a community development organisation as a program evaluator. Sara holds a Masters of International Development from RMIT University in Melbourne.
One of Sara’s professional highlights was leading an evaluation of a medical education program, which took her across Timor-Leste to spend time with doctors and in hospitals and community health centres in some of the most regional and remote parts of the country.
Sara is working towards a more equitable world where people have access to affordable, high quality health services and the freedom to make informed and autonomous decisions about their own health.
