John Dusabe

I am an international public health researcher based at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine. Becoming a member of RSTMH has kept me abreast of cutting-edge research and evidence in tropical medicine and international health as well as developments and debates in global health directions. Reduced delegate fees and attendance at RSTMH scientific meetings and conferences have been key benefits in my field of research.
