"I believe that providing access to health care is one of the biggest challenges which must be overcome to achieve health for all. I believe in justice, inclusion, and gender equality." says Dr Batra. "My role is to guide the organisation in its strategy and vision, and oversee implementation, communication, partnerships and data collection. I started my work by building partnerships to serve hard-to-reach and marginalised children. I travel extensively to meet people who are in the frontline of care.

This year I was selected as TrustConference Changemaker by the Thomson Reuters foundation and at their event I met and built partners with church groups working in remote, rural India.
