Jayant Yadav, MBBS
Associate Editor, WNFO Blog
Dr. Jayant Yadav is an aspiring neurologist from Nepal interested in vascular neurology and neurocritical care. His experience working as a junior doctor in rural Nepal taught him that treatment outcomes in resource-poor settings are influenced by a variety of factors, including patients’ financial ability, sociocultural beliefs, and disease-related stigmas. He believes that health is a fundamental right and that no one should be denied clinical care because of where they were born or their ability to pay. This sparked his interest in global neurology, with a goal of improving neurological care in resource-limited settings through education, training, and research. He is particularly interested in low-cost alternatives for the diagnosis and treatment of neurological diseases, the engagement of community health volunteers in the identification and early referral of neurological conditions, and low-cost teleneurology.
Dr. Yadav earned his medical degree at the Tribhuvan University, Institute of Medicine in Kathmandu, Nepal. He aims to pursue his residency in neurology in the United States soon. While pursuing his residency, he hopes to continue his work in global neurology and promote the well-being of those affected by neurological conditions globally.
