She also holds a master’s and bachelor’s degree in nursing from the University of Ghana and a master’s in health professions education from the Suez Canal University, Egypt. Her doctoral work examined the social-moral dimension of midwifery practice in Ghana. Boakye is currently focusing on understanding the impact of systemic injustice on motherhood aspirations among vulnerable populations. Boakye previously taught in Ghana and has led a midwifery and pediatric nursing curriculum development program under the Netherlands Initiative for Capacity Building in Higher Education in Ghana.
