Emily Ma is an assistant researcher in health care and social development at the Our Hong Kong Foundation. She graduated with a BA in psychology, and is a magna cum laude and Engaged Scholarship Award recipient at Brown University, US, where she is also pursuing a Master of Public Health. She is passionate about minority health research and mental well-being.

A recent Covid-19 lockdown and the health care voucher scheme for the elderly are examples of well-intentioned but not well-thought-out health measures. The fragmentation of health services in Hong Kong suggests the need to empower residents to navigate the health system.

The new hospital, due to open in 2025, will advance training and research to make Hong Kong an international model in delivering integrated Chinese-Western medical services.
