We’ll be hearing from Population Connection’s Senior Analyst Hannah Evans for an overview of the population, health, and environment (PHE) approach to addressing climate change. Joshua Mirondo, Project Associate for Transition Earth will then provide a regional perspective on the status of reproductive health and justice in Uganda.
Based in Kampala, Uganda, Joshua Mirondo is a freelance blogger, digital marketer, and photographer. He is a graduate of Uganda Christian University, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in public administration and management. He also volunteers with Reproductive Health Uganda (RHU), where he is part of the communications team; Joshua has been a community-based reproductive health trainer and peer educator with RHU since 2015. He has a passion for using digital media for advocacy and has worked on projects that seek to empower women, girls, and young people to know their sexual reproductive health and rights in a country full of patriarchy and cultural norms that hinder access to these services.
Before joining Population Connection’s staff, Hannah worked as an adjunct professor of Women’s Studies and taught gender, science, and feminist theory classes. She has nonprofit experience working as a program developer for sustainable agriculture and public health programs in Honduras and Panama. She has worked as a researcher on food security issues throughout southern California.
