Placement Country: Rwanda
Title: Communications Officer
I'm inspired by Paul Farmer's statement, 'The belief that some lives matter more than others is the root cause of all injustice.' Thus, I consider health equity as equal health opportunities for all people, no matter their backgrounds.

He was also a Health Writer at The New Times Rwanda and was a Harvard University Cross-Emerging Leaders Program Fellow in 2021.
