Dr. Senjuti Saha spends her days in Bangladesh working to address systemic inequalities across the public health sector and basic scientific research. She’s been honoured for her work as a Gates Goalkeeper by the Gates Foundation and has recently thrown her considerable strength behind the fight against COVID-19 in her community.
We’re honoured to have Senjuti speak with us about how she’s been moving the efforts to address vaccine-preventable diseases in Bangladesh forward and the importance of understanding and acknowledging intersectionality and inequity in science and beyond.
