Partners in Health with Jourdan McGinn

EPISODE 26: Partners in Health with Jourdan McGinn (This episode was recorded in a public space, so you may hear footsteps, echoes & general titter tatter - we’re sorry, we’ve tried our best to make it easier to listen to!) This week we’re talking to Director of Policy & Partnership with the formidable Partners in Health (PIH) Sierra Leone, Jourdan McGinn. On Thursday 29th November, 2018, we had our final VERVE Think Tank (VTT) of the year and did so in partnership with PIH. We were lucky enough to have Jourdan fly over to our London office so VERVE ‘Mother’ Anna Quick- Palmer could interview her at the event in front of 40+ attendees. This episode is just a snippet of the fundamental work PIH are doing. Anna, Jourdan & VERVE Chief Managing Feminist Erin Whiteley sit down to talk about what PIH do, and how we can go about to help them, too… Give to PIH Sierra Leone here, where all your donations will be MATCHED: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/vervethinktankglobal2018?...
