Maïmouna Bah is a 2022 graduate of the LL.M. in National and Global Health Law program.

Bah is interested in global health governance and diplomacy, policy making, and advocacy related to sexual and reproductive health, as well as noncommunicable diseases, particularly tobacco control and food systems. She is especially interested in projects relating to West Africa, which is where she is originally from.

Prior to Georgetown, Bah was a sexual and reproductive health (SRH) coordinator in the International Alliance for Medical Action (ALIMA), where she collaborated in strategic planning to provide health services in humanitarian settings. She also worked as a junior project manager and policy analyst in a public health consulting firm in Paris, which designs and supports the implementation of health programs with African Ministries of Health. During law school, she worked as a research assistant for the French National Research Institute for Sustainable Development and had some clinical experience in obstetrics within the Paris University Hospitals before that.

Bah holds a Master’s of Laws in Health Law from the Paris University with a certificate of Public Policy from Sciences Po Paris. Prior to that, she pursued a Bachelor of Science in Midwifery from the Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines University with a minor in law.

She is the recipient of the Global Health Law Scholarship from Georgetown, the Fulbright Scholarship, and the Lurcy and Monahan Fellowship from two private foundations.
