Global Health Technologies Coalition

Julien Rashid

Policy and Advocacy Associate

Julien supports the US advocacy portfolio of the coalition by tracking policy developments, conducting legislative analysis, research, and drafting content to educate policymakers and global health stakeholders about global health research and development. 

Before joining the Global Health Technologies Coalition, Julien was an associate at FasterCures, a center of the Milken Institute, where he supported the organization’s programs on economic incentives, health data, and patient-centricity. Before FasterCures, Julien worked in a mix of health spaces while at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. After counting pills in a pharmacy, sequencing DNA in a lab, analyzing the health and economic outcomes of rural communities, facilitating global health educational courses, and listening to people in the most underserved parts of the country and the world, he realized his interests lie in health systems, their inefficiencies, and their potential. Julien holds a B.S. with a double major in molecular biology and community and environmental sociology. He also has a certificate (minor) in global health.
