About Minal Rahimtoola
I am a project manager/international development consultant with significant experience developing and implementing projects in the international development sector. A majority of my work has been in Pakistan at the local level with women and young people on improving access to services for sexual and reproductive health, I have also worked on global projects that improve access to comprehensive primary health services in low resourced communities. Most recently, I worked with Partners in Health, developing training materials for community health workers and clinicians for projects in Rwanda and Malawi to improve health service delivery. I have a Masters in Governance and Development from the Institute for Development Studies at Sussex University and a BA from the University of Virginia in Foreign Affairs/Political Science.
GHE Program interests: to explore ways to make primary health and sexual and reproductive health programs sustainable in low resourced areas. Not only from a financial prospective, but also from a quality perspective with local ownership, refresher trainings, monitoring and evaluation and ensuring that data is used from the field to improve existing resources and programs rather than create new / parallel ones.
