Bimal Raj Dawadi, a resident of Pokhara, Nepal, graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Major English and Sociology in 2004, and a Master’s Degree in English Literature in 2008. Earlier, he taught English in Secondary and Higher Secondary Level for six years. He also volunteered in an INGO called ‘Safe Motherhood Federation Nepal’ in 2005/2006, working for improving the health condition of mothers and infants in some rural districts of Nepal. As a secretary of one of the district groups of Amnesty International Nepal, he launched several awareness programs on human rights issues and movements. Through these experiences, he encountered the poor health and social condition of people in general, and particularly in rural parts of Nepal. As he was looking for a suitable course in health issues that employed a socio-cultural perspective, he came to know about MAHASSA-program in the University of Heidelberg and joined it. This course is most suitable for him because it offers him a platform to work with people, as well as to earn his living. He is interested in conducting research on HIV/AIDS and other contemporary health problems and his M.A. thesis is entitled "Trafficking in girls and women in Nuwakot, Nepal: HIV/AIDS and Human Rights".
