A Shot in the Arm Podcast with Ben Plumley: Decolonialize your Career in Global Health
Ben has a fascinating conversation with Dr. Kirk Scirto, author of the modestly titled “Doing Global Health Work” published by Hesperian on his lessons learned from a career of over 20 years sharing medical skills in service of local health services in 11 countries across 4 continents. Its a cracking read – and essential for those interested in meaningful careers in global health, checking our northern privilege to serve communities who have as much to teach us as well as benefiting from the skills and tools we may have to offer.
You can find “Doing Global Health Work” from all good book shops, and directly from Hesperian at
