Alumna Katy Wong's internship at WHO

Katy Wong, alumna of the 2013 Class of the Bachelor of Chinese Medicine and Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Biomedical Science programme, was selected from over 10,000 applicants worldwide to win an internship opportunity at the Department of Traditional and Complementary Medicine of the headquarters of World Health Organisation (WHO) in Geneva from August 2014 to February 2015. The internship programme is open to public health students and experts from all over the world and the application success rate is 5%.

At WHO, Katy was engaged in the verification and analysis of data collected for the global survey on traditional medicines: policy on traditional medicine and regulation and safety monitoring of herbal medicines, and had the opportunity to participate in a number of training sessions and discussion seminars to enrich her knowledge of public health. With the outbreak of Ebola in West Africa, the team to which she belongs had been coordinating experts of traditional medicines from around the world to try to work out strategies for treating Ebola patients. She also attended sharing sessions conducted by experts deployed to fight Ebola in West Africa as well as meetings of WHO and United Nations experts to discuss the vaccine and treatment for Ebola. These experiences enabled her to learn about the all-round strategy adopted by the international organisations for confronting an epidemic.

Katy completed the Master of Public Health programme at the University of Edinburgh Medical School, United Kingdom in 2014. She said: "As a result of the internship, I am exposed to different global health issues, and look at traditional medicine from an international perspective. It has challenged me to reflect on how young Chinese medicine practitioners could contribute to the promotion of traditional medicine in the global health arena."
