LCL FELLOWS 2014
Leslie London. Professor in the School of Public Health and Family Medicine, University of Cape Town, Leslie is a physician with a strong occupational, environmental and public health focus ori- ented toward civil society participation and agency in realizing the Right to Health. After a few years working for Trade Union- linked health services before moving to UCT, he ‘shifted from being a very quantitative epidemiologist to thinking about how to integrate human rights into Public Health practice.’ Leslie, for whom social justice is fundamental and persistence a vir- tue, believes that ‘we should constantly struggle to help to create a better world – which IS possible.’ He lives this metaphorically by cycling, falling off bicycles, and getting back on again.
