Patron & Trustees


Dr. Martha Campbell

After many years of dedicated service as a trustee, Dr. Martha Campbell was appointed Patron in June 2017. Martha’s international profile is well-known, having written and presented on the importance of reproductive health and rights (and population as an issue in international development) since the 1990s. From directing the population programme of the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, to creating Venture Strategies for Health and Development, and working tirelessly on the boards of World Health Partners in New Delhi, the African Institute for Development Policy in Kenya, Martha’s work has had impacts around the world. Martha’s publication record has been prolific, and we are proud to have her as Patron.
