External title: MD, Medical Doctor

Background

I concluded my medical studies in 2016 and I started this year my Public Health residency in Coimbra, Portugal. Currently I am also doing an Information Management and Business Intelligence in Health post-graduation degree.

Why GHNGN

My interest in Global Health has grown last year after attending the Global Health Summer School at the Barcelona Institute for Global Health. Motivated by this course, I start looking deeper into this field and came across GHNGN. I fully identified with the aims of GHNGN and therefore I joined the network. I believe that health problems transcend any national boundaries and that is our generation concern to lead the future health sector transformation, fighting for health equity.

Responsibility

I am a writer for the news team and I hope to create a space for analysis and discussion of relevant topics regarding Global Health and promote reflection so that together we can tackle world problems.
