Namuyamba Muyunda, Zambia Program and Operations Manager
I believe that with combined effort, we will live in a world where injustice exists no more, a world where everyone has equal opportunities and health equity is a reality. I am proud to be a part of Global Health Corps' health equity movement which embraces young people who have unique skills regardless of whether their backgrounds are in or outside health care because everyone has a vital role to play.
