The National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Women in Science and Women in Global Health campaign runs from 11th February and continues until International Women's Day on 8th March. The campaign celebrates and recognises women in global health research, particularly those NIHR-supported researchers and teams who are playing a critical role in addressing the health needs of communities in low and middle income countries.

We spoke to the acting Director of Warwick Centre for Global Health, Dr Oyinlola Oyebdoe to share her thoughts on the campaign and inspirational women. Dr Oyebode shared details of some of the inspiring women who have studied or been in placement at Warwick Medical School and shared some recent photographs of inspirational students.
