Dr Lemonge Norbert
Dr Lemonge Norbert is a medical doctor with several years of clinical and public health experience form Cameroon. He worked with the Ministry of Public health In Cameroon as a Chief Medical Officer and doctor in a remote district with poor health services. Rising conflicts in the area led him to work with International Non-governmental Organisations such as Médecins sans frontiers, the International Medical Corps and Africa Humanitarian Action as a humanitarian medical doctor and team leader, providing health and nutritional care to refugees and internally displaced persons all over the country.
He is currently reading an MSc in Tropical Medicine and International Health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. His career goals and research interests are geared towards providing adequate and timely care to populations in distress in areas affected by conflicts and war through program management and coordination. He intends to lead interventional research and projects with innovative ideas that should improve tropical medical care in conflict and fragile settings.
Dr Lemonge also prides himself as an awardee of the Commonwealth Scholarships due to the impact he had in the communities he worked in. He decided to become an RSTMH ambassador to brand the works of this institution in line with combatting tropical communicable and Non-Communicable Diseases.
