Julian Natukunda

Postdoctoral Researcher

Julian is a postdoctoral researcher focusing on ethics and solidarity in global health, with an interest for holistic approaches to tackle intricate health challenges. Her PhD in International Health from the University of Tokyo focused on long-term retention of people living with HIV in care in Uganda, utilising the positive deviance approach.

Her current work adopts a pluriversal approach to understand solidarity in global health. It also involves developing a solidarity index for global health research and funding that will empower stakeholders and the public to measure adherence to solidaristic ideals.

Prior to this, Julian worked on the EU Horizon 2020 ENBEL project researching the impacts of climate change on health and supporting policy engagement on health adaptation in East and Southern Africa.

Julian’s interests are centred on engaging in multidisciplinary research initiatives that encompass disease prevention, health policy and equity, and adaptation to the health impacts of climate change. She also has experience in health communication, implementation science approaches and knowledge translation which she uses in her research pursuits.
