Aoife Kenny is not quite the typical person – she is a global citizen who has shared her passion for social justice across the world, combining her interests in health and design on projects from New Zealand to Africa.
GHG: Tell us about yourself.
I grew up mostly in New Zealand – all over the country – and also spent some time in Ireland (my parents are Irish). My early years had a few notable influences. We moved to Ireland when I was at the very impressionable age of 11, at this time I realized I wasn’t really a ‘Kiwi’ and not really ‘Irish’ either – some sort of global citizen. The other influence was a teacher and my Dad who were very passionate about social justice.

The acronym ‘WHO’ rolls of the tongue of anyone interested in global health. As I am sure you are aware, the World Health Organization (WHO) is a part of the UN system and is the coordinating authority on global health issues (read more about WHO here). You have probably come across various WHO publications such as the World Health Report or more specific point of care resources (for example, see the GHG Review on the WHO Pocket Book). Importantly, the WHO also publishes a range of journals, and here, I will focus on the Bulletin of the World Health Organization.
