Blue Ventures Conservation | Medical Director
Dr. Vik Mohan is the Medical Director of Blue Ventures Conservation and a practicing doctor with a passion for marine conservation and global social justice.
Whilst working with communities in Madagascar on Blue Ventures’ community-based marine conservation programme, his interest in community health led him to uncover a huge unmet need for health care, and sexual and reproductive health care in particular. In response to this need, he led the development and implementation of the region’s first sexual and reproductive health service, and oversaw its integration into the portfolio of Blue Ventures’ projects, to form an award-winning Population, Health, and Environment (PHE) programme.
After nearly ten years of supporting the implementation and growth of this programme, he has witnessed first-hand the multiple benefits of working in this integrated and holistic way. This has inspired him to try and ensure that as many people as possible benefit from this “whole system” approach to conservation and sustainable development, throughout Madagascar and beyond.
He continues to balance his medical practice with his work for Blue Ventures. His work as a clinician helps to ensure Blue Ventures’ community health programme stays focussed on the needs and rights of communities.
