The Poetry of Health
Oct 16 @ 8:15 pm

An evening of poetry, storytelling and practical reflections on global health with Chris Jenkins, co-founder of Share Uganda and Global Health Researcher at Queen’s University Belfast.

“Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “”Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhumane.” Globally, we see this inequality in health at it’s most stark. We live in a world in which where you are born impacts massively on how you can expect to live, and what you can expect in terms of your health.

Chris Jenkins is a global health researcher and activist. He currently works at Queen’s University Belfast on breast cancer research in Vietnam, and he was part of a group of young people from Northern Ireland who created a global health non-government organisation in 2008. Share Uganda focuses on empowering Ugandan healthcare workers and community activists to improve health outcomes in Kabira, Uganda.

Using a combination of poetry and storytelling, Chris introduces us to some of the people he has met throughout his ten-year career; people affected by malaria in Uganda, breast cancer in Vietnam, and dementia in the United States. Chris discusses a myriad of interconnected and complex health challenges, putting the human experience at the centre of every story. Chris uses his talk to also discuss some of the practicalities and challenges of working in global health, as well as the points of inspiration, friendship and connection that he has experienced over the past ten years. Chris leaves us with a call for action for how we can all do our bit to remake the world in a fairer and more equal way.
