The CSEM Advisory Group
Health, Gender Justice and Advocacy Officer, Oxfam France
Sandra Lhote-Fernandes is the health, gender justice and G7 advocacy officer at Oxfam France. Graduated from the Institute of Economic and Social Development Studies of Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne University, she is specialized in social development and global health.
Oxfam is a world-wide development organization that mobilizes the power of people against poverty. Oxfam has been advocating and campaigning for universal essential services including health, both internationally and nationally in developing countries for the past fifteen years. We believe that access to good quality, public health care – free at the point of use – is both a right and a fundamental building block to tackling poverty and inequality.
Through our work, Oxfam has built a strong body of research, publications and policy products on health financing mechanisms and health systems, including critiquing various forms of public and private health insurance, advocating for increased tax based financing and the removal of user fees, and interrogating the role of the private versus public sector in the delivery of health care.
