Hi! My name is Erlyn (Lyn) Macarayan, a Filipino currently taking my PhD at the University of Queensland, Australia. As a researcher, I work on assessing health systems in many low and middle income countries. Through this research, I hope I can contribute in facilitating cross-country learning so that we can still deliver the best possible healthcare despite our limited resources. As a health activist and an emerging voice for global health, I strongly advocate for health equity and universal health coverage - simply means that "all of us deserve proper care and that no one should ever die without seeing a doctor!" I understand how powerful social media is and I hope that the many little ways that I and my organizations do in sharing significant health findings all over the world can help inform the way we think about our healthcare. Thanks for all the nominations and endorsements! Rest assured that I'll definitely be working hard to be the voice of health not only for the many Filipinos who are disadvantaged in accessing proper healthcare but also for the many others all across the world who may never had the chance to see a doctor. Let's all raise our health awareness and partner to fight the many pressing global health issues of today! :)
