Health equity to me means everyone having an opportunity to be as healthy as possible, regardless of their socioeconomic status or cultural and demographic background.

A native of Chipata, Zambia, Kelly Nyau is passionate about sexual and reproductive health issues and the rights of those with disabilities. Prior to joining GHC, Kelly worked as a Health Analyst at Avencion Zambia, where he spearheaded a project on database development at the facility level. As a Social Marketing Research Intern at USAID’s Discover Health Project, he was recognized for his report writing skills. When he isn’t working, Kelly enjoys watching soccer, listening to music, and reading about current affairs.
