“So you want to work abroad?” Missionaries, mercenaries and misfits?

Dr Andrew Lee, Public Health England

Dr Andrew Lee initially trained as a paediatrician and in tropical medicine before embarking on a varied potpurri career working in international health. He is a self-professed disaster junkie who has worked in post-conflict Afghanistan, as well as various disaster zones such as Sri Lanka after the 2004 tsunami disaster, post-cholera Zimbabwe, and after typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. He currently works as a Consultant in Communicable Disease Control with Public Health England in Yorkshire. He is also a Senior Lecturer at the University of Sheffield where he teaches communicable disease control, disaster management, and global public health. At various points in his career he has probably been a missionary, mercenary and misfit in international health, and is keen for others not to repeat the same mistakes he has made in the past!
