As a Global Partnerships program associate, a position partially funded by the Princeton in Latin America Fellowship, I have been working with GP’s Program & Impact team since September to support GP’s health and green technology initiatives. For one year, I will be based out of GP’s office in Nicaragua and working onsite with our partners to help implement and evaluate their programmatic work. I’ll be reporting back here with regular updates from the field!
Since World Health Day was on April 7, "an opportunity for individuals in every community to get involved in activities that can lead to better health," it's fitting that the Global Health and Innovation Conference (GHIC) will take place this weekend.
I was fortunate to travel to three countries recently with Lara Diaconu, GP’s vice president of the Health Services Fund, to meet with existing partners and explore the potential for new ones. In Honduras, we met with our partner in the Health Services Fund, COMIXMUL and their sister organization FUDEIMFA.
