Akanksha brings with her two years of experience in strategizing public health with a pragmatic and operational outlook to foster change for those who need it the most. She has previously worked with Clinton Health Access Initiative, as a Program Assistant in the Tuberculosis program- where she worked closely with Rajasthan State Tuberculosis Cell- in the areas of Direct Benefit Transfers, Private sector engagement, Capacity Building, and Monitoring and Evaluation.
She holds a bachelor’s degree in dental surgery from Rajasthan University of Health Sciences. During graduation, she developed a keen interest in Community medicine, and spearheaded multiple health camps in Rajasthan while leveraging comprehensive knowledge of emergency medicine to assess, treat and stabilize patients, and coordinated with local authorities to mobilize the patients to closest help.
When not engaged in activities around work, she enjoys travelling and immersing herself in the local culture of a place. She is also an avid cinephile, a misfit musician, a football fanatic, and a rookie chef- experimenting with different cuisines, very often with disastrous results but at other times bordering on gourmet.
