Esha Gopee, Fellow of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners, represents determination and passion in the service of women's health. Her three-year specialist training in Australia, coupled with an advanced diploma in obstetrics and gynecology as well as a diploma in child health, places her at the heart of women's health issues. “Although I have a particular interest and training in women's health, I also enjoy general practice for the breadth of knowledge required,” she explains. This versatility allows it to provide comprehensive support, from caring for infants to the elderly, providing primary treatment for a variety of body systems.

One of the most rewarding aspects of her job is the long-term relationships she builds with her patients. “I know them in the full context of their family and their community,” she emphasizes. This holistic approach allows it to offer support tailored to each individual, considering not only the physical, but also the emotional and social facets of their well-being. For Esha Gopee, the choice to specialize in obstetrics and gynecology stems from her passion for supporting women on their journey to motherhood. Her experience as a general gynecologist in rural Australia has allowed her to play a crucial role in her patients' lives, from pregnancy to birth and beyond. “I had the privilege of being part of this life cycle and seeing them grow,” she says. However, it also recognizes the challenges women face when it comes to health, particularly conditions that are often misunderstood and underestimated. “It is this awareness that fuels my passion to help women overcome these difficulties and access appropriate health care,” she confides.

In the meantime, it has launched the first phase of the project with the two clinics in Ébène and Flacq, with an expansion plan for the future. These two clinics are much more than traditional medical establishments. “Indeed, they represent a concerted effort to improve access to health services, particularly for women. From flexible hours to telemedicine services, including a welcoming environment, every aspect is designed to meet the diverse needs of the population,” explains our interlocutor. Additionally, she continues, the commitment to transparent communication and integrated care ensures consistent and comprehensive care for every patient.
