Board Member

Kush is a grassroots campaigner who joined the board in October 2022. He works in London as a doctor, currently training to specialise in infectious diseases and microbiology, and he has a particular interest in TB and tropical diseases. He previously worked on the development of COVID vaccines as an NIHR clinical fellow, on phase 1-3 clinical trials, including the Oxford/AstraZeneca, Janssen and Valneva vaccines, as well as combination and booster vaccine studies. He is a passionate advocate for social, climate and health justice, wanting to work towards building a fairer world where everyone is given equal opportunities to be heard. He was previously involved in parliamentary advocacy with UAEM UK, demanding that intellectual property developed from publicly funded health research should be licensed in a way that ensured it’s affordability did not become a barrier to access. Outside of work he enjoys eating his own bodyweight in vegan chocolate ice cream, watching movies, meeting new people, and trying to convince the world of the benefits of freezing tofu before cooking with it.
