In global health, communities served are often underrepresented or excluded from policy development and decision making processes. We talked to Margaret Phiri about what we must do to change this; how we can ensure that policies are people-centered, responsive, and supported; and lessons she has learned that can aid in our collective efforts to decolonize global health.
