Stephanie Ngo is a health systems specialist who works across research, policy and practice to support people-centred health service delivery transformation and policy development. She started her career at The Hospital for Sick Children, and has worked at the Provincial Health Services Authority (British Columbia) and the World Health Organization (Headquarters, Asia-Pacific Region and Country Offices) in various capacities. Since joining WHO in 2013, Stephanie has advanced a number of agendas, including: integrated people-centred health services; human resources for health; primary health care; implementation research; and universal health coverage. She has played an instrumental role in supporting nursing policy development – notably through her contributions to policy dialogue on the nursing workforce where the idea for a global campaign on nursing and midwifery (NursingNow) was conceived. Stephanie is currently based in Cambodia where she is providing technical assistance to the Ministry of Health on primary health care and COVID-19 preparedness and response.
