Health equity to me means that every everyone is equal in terms of access to health social services–that no one is disadvantaged because of his or her social status, group, age, gender, etc.

A native of Kayonza, Rwanda, Jean Damascene Kwizera is a fierce advocate for young people to access the tools and skills they need to succeed. Prior to joining GHC, he worked as a Monitoring & Evaluation Fellow at Education Development Center where he connected underserved youth with technical training. Additionally, he was an Economist for the Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning, conducting data analysis and forecasting. For fun, Jean Damascene enjoys listening to music, traveling, and spending time with his friends.
