Introduction: Yina Garcia Lopez, UK

23 March, 2020

Thank you for letting me join HIFA.

I am a public health professional with a passion for health research, the promotion of education and health communication and, international cooperation. I have worked in the control and prevention of illnesses such as Dengue Fever and Teenager pregnancy in Colombian communities. NGO project management in health fields in multi-professional and multicultural environments in Spanish.

I am currently living in Edinburgh with the hope of learning a little more about my field of work and having the opportunity to find a health related job.

I heard about HIFA-Zambia through Liz Grant who is currently my tutor in an internship that I am currently doing.

I hope to learn a lot from your experiences and contribute from my experience in health and communication and health education.
