She has extensive background in programming targeting maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health, with engagement in every step of the process, ranging from fund raising to behaviour change communication and the training of community health workers. She currently works as an independent consultant based in Geneva, Switzerland. Needless to say, we are excited to hear about her path to Geneva, and to gain insight on work in a multilateral organization. All are welcome to attend.
