Cale is motivated to help reduce the global burden of ill health caused by unhealthy environments, systems and exposures. He believes that there is a synergy between enabling people to lead healthy lives, while also benefiting the environment, and climate and addressing the social determinants of health. Through policy work on global health, he works to advocate for systemic changes that allow people to lead healthy lives around the world, by bringing scientific evidence, health ethics and public health experience.Originally from Australia, Cale is a medical doctor by training, completing his Bachelor of Medicine at the University of New England, Armidale, and medical training in Lismore. He gained a double Masters of Public Health and International Public Health at the University of New South Wales, Sydney, and followed this working with marginalised groups and infectious diseases in Tbilisi, Georgia, and refugees in Chios, Greece, before moving to Ireland, where he worked initially in public health policy research. With the onset of the pandemic, he moved to a medical public health role in the national health service of Ireland, working largely in outbreak control and health emergencies, healthy environments and active mobility advocacy, before moving to a global health role at EPHA. In his spare time, Cale also enjoys photography and travelling, especially to Eastern and Southern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia. He is actively learning Serbo-Croatian, French and German, as well as knowing some basic Russian and Farsi. He listens to a lot of music and watches a lot of movies. He is fascinated by history, culture, geography and philosophy, and enjoys long conversations with friends.
