Anaesthetic Rep - UK
Jan Man Wong
I am an anaesthetic registrar in East London UK. I developed an interest in global health when I became a UNICEF Young Envoy in high school. I have travelled to the Himalayas (mobile clinics) and South Africa (HEE Improving Global Health Fellowship). I am enrolled in a Masters in Global Health Leadership. I am passionate about improving access to safer surgery and leading sustainable change via education and quality improvement.
I have developed an interest in global health and surgery since my elective in South Africa. I have also volunteered with Mercy Ships, initially in Togo as one of the hospital doctors, and have since returned to volunteer as an anaesthetic trainee in Madagascar, the Republic of Congo and Benin.
I've seen first-hand the real need for access to safe anaesthesia and surgery and I'm excited to now be involved with the work of GASOC.
