Neelam Punjani


Neelam is deeply interested in m-health and the use of tele-health to reach women in remote areas of Pakistan. She is currently Research Officer at the Aga Khan University. Her passion for sexual and reproductive health began when she attended a train-the-trainer workshop with the Aahung, and replicated the training in her own community as a volunteer. Neelam recently completed her MS in nursing from Aga Khan University School of Nursing and Midwifery. She hopes to start her own non-profit focused on adolescent reproductive health.

This project works with Aahung nurses, teachers, and community workers and trains them on providing sexual health education and close follow-up of master trainers along with support provided to replicate sexual health workshops for youth.
