Meet the Team

We are a multi-disciplinary team from across the world, with many of us currently studying at the University of Edinburgh. As members of the Buchanan Institute, a student-led think tank which facilitates pursuits to enact change, we have followed our shared passion for reforming current contraceptive care and health in Scotland.
