Jerusalem Hadush

Jerusalem Hadush is a Global Affairs major—focusing on international development and policy to improve healthcare system delivery in low-middle income countries—from Seattle, WA. She is particularly interested in understanding barriers to health access for marginalized populations in East Africa, the Middle East, and the Caribbean. While studying post-conflict development in Rwanda, she was exposed to the unique global health issues and challenges due to complex humanitarian emergencies. She was inspired by the successful efforts to rebuild and strengthen the health infrastructure, and realized the importance of investing in human capital and healthcare workers. On campus, she is on the Board of the Yale Undergraduate Association for African Peace and Development, leads a “TedTalk Book Club” with New Haven high school students through the Amy Rossborough Fellowship, and is a student manager of the Jonathan Edwards Buttery.
