Alica Bayingana

Rwanda Program Officer

Prior to joining the GHC team, Alice completed the joint MSc in Global Mental Health at King’s College London and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in 2021. Alice is passionate about access to health, especially as it relates to adolescents and young people accessing sexual and reproductive health and rights, mental health services, and education. In the past, she has worked as a Research Associate in the Office of the Vice Chancellor at the University of Global Health Equity where most of her work was focused on child mental health and access to care issues.

Her journey into global health research started at Partners In Health/Inshuti Mu Buzima through the Global Health Corps fellowship program in 2015 where she was involved in conducting and facilitating research on various topics including integrating health services at the primary care level, child mortality, and mental health care, to name a few, with an added focus on finding new ways to improve the research capacity of health care professionals and increase the quality and quantity of homegrown knowledge.

Outside of global health and advocacy work, she likes to spend her time reading, playing with her dogs, writing, and taking mediocre pictures of beautiful sunsets.

"We cannot hope to improve human health without simultaneously addressing economic, social, and environmental injustices.”
