Emily Lamunu is a Summer in the Field Fellow, 2023 and a Ph.D. Candidate in the Social Work program at Boston University. 

For her Summer in the Field Fellowship, Emily will be interning at the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation in Uganda to ensure and advocate for the strengthening of health systems. She will identify and disseminate project activities and achievements, work with cross-organization teams, government officials and communities to identify and share best practices and lessons learned and more. At the WHO, fellowship mentors, cohort, supervisor, and colleagues will challenge her to be a better advocate and practitioner for global health and social justice.  Emily hopes to become part of a new era of socially conscious leaders she believes Africa needs, where policy, global health, research, advocacy and social justice are central to humanitarian work.
