News writer

Country: Portugal
External title: Medical Doctor


I’m a medical doctor from Portugal, currently working in Public Health in my home country. During my years in Medical School, I developed a major interest in Human Rights and Global Health.


I saw in GHNGN an opportunity to learn and interact with young colleagues from all over the world that share the same passion as me for Global Health. It is very motivating to share ideas with people driven and also starting a career in Global Health such as myself.


My position is of a news writer. My job is to write articles about pressing issues regarding Global Health and review other people’s articles. If you have any ideas regarding pressing issues, you are interested in writing for us or just want to talk to me about any of the topics I’ve written about, feel welcome!
