Medical Device Policy at WHO

During the summer of 2012, I interned at the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland. I worked as part of the Diagnostic Imaging and Medical Devices Unit. Below is a summary of some of the projects that I was involved in:

  • Contributed to the compilation and authorship of a WHO report regarding overcoming barriers to local production and technology transfer in low and middle-income countries.
