Professor Sassy Molyneux’s main interests reside in Social science and Ethics in Global Health. Over the years, Sassy and colleagues have explored patient and provider experiences, resilience and responsiveness of health systems,  and ethics in practice in resource constrained environments.  Their work recognizes the importance of understanding realities from those with lived experience, of examining issues in context, and of recognizing structural drivers of day to day opportunities and challenges.
