Chair – United Kingdom

nyambe.mukelabai@eatg.org

Nyambe’s overarching interests over the years have been in rights and practice associated with access to health, especially in relation to populations at the periphery of services due to their marginalised and vulnerable situations. Having begun as a volunteer in the area of prevention strategies and access to sexual health services, he is now a lead in Asset Based Community Development within the sector.

Nyambe’s interests, academic legal background and speciality in human rights also provided him the opportunity to represent the EATG at the Platform for International Cooperation on Undocumented Migrants (PICUM) for six years – within the thematic group on access to healthcare.

He has also previously taught law at the University undergraduate level.
