A senior lecturer at the Centre for Communication, Media and Society (CCMS) within the School of Applied Human Sciences, Govender is recognised in her field for her work in strategic communication approaches with entertainment education and the use of participatory action research for health promotion with specific applications to HIV prevention strategies.

She will serve as co-chair for four years and during her tenure hopes to ‘increase critical thinking and knowledge sharing that reflect global and localised discourses in health communication, attract emerging scholars with mentorship programmes within the health communication working group, and identify opportunities for international research collaboration, lecturer student exchange and joint publications.’

The IAMCR conference took place at the School of Communication at the Complutense University of Madrid. It was also attended by UKZN’s Professors Ruth Teer-Tomaselli and Donal McCracken and Dr Lauren Dyll, who presented papers in the History, and Participatory Communication Research sections, respectively.
