Sue Godt is an experienced, passionate, and committed development professional and change agent who has spent her life working with others to build a just society. She has over 35 years of experience living and working across Africa. She has supported: local economic and women's development in Botswana; organizational development, knowledge management and organizational learning in Zimbabwe and South Africa and rights-based programming in South Africa. For 15 years, she has brought this multisectoral experience to global health: family medicine and women's health research programmes in South Africa, and adolescent HIV prevention programmes across southern Africa. During 10 years with the International Development Research Centre she supported southern stakeholders to generate and apply evidence to strengthen equitable health systems and address complex reproductive, maternal, and adolescent health challenges. Given increasing fragmentation of global health, she is currently examining governance of global health and education through doctoral studies.
