Dr Vik Mohan is an Exeter based GP, Director of Community Health at Blue Ventures Conservation, and architect of Blue Ventures’ award winning integrated health and conservation programme.
Whilst working with communities in Madagascar on Blue Ventures’ community based marine conservation programme, his interest in community health led him to uncover a huge unmet need for health care. Responding to this need, he led the development of Blue Ventures’ community health programme and oversaw its integration into the portfolio of Blue Ventures’ activities, to form an integrated Population, Health and Environment programme.
After over ten years of supporting the implementation and growth of this programme in Madagascar, he now works to try and ensure that as many people as possible benefit from this “whole system” approach to conservation and sustainable development. His work with Blue Ventures now focusses on supporting others to adopt this approach throughout the coastal tropics.
