At Global Health Strategies she has worked on a range of public health issues and is responsible for managing stakeholder relationships, leading policy research studies, developing financing strategies for health care services and organizing high level advocacy meetings.
Previously, she worked with the Results Measurement team at the International Finance Corporation (IFC), World Bank Group where she provided economic and technical assistance in designing evaluation parameters and systems for South Asia. In the stint with MSG Consultants, she was involved in the monitoring and evaluation of reproductive health projects for the Indian Ministry of Health.
