Over the years, working in the field of community and public health, I have matured with an understanding of health policies and issues affecting people living in rural and remote areas. I have witnessed first-hand how people strive to live with dignity while still faced with daunting challenges of poverty and other harsh conditions. Although health is not always considered priority for external sustainable intervention, public health interventions are basic services which people of all cultural and social backgrounds should be offered.
In pursuant of this goal, of reaching the under-served, have remained motivated to further my career in the field of community & public medicine, while improving my skills in the service to humanity. It will give me great satisfaction to work alongside vulnerable communities in their efforts and drive to improve their lives. I am convinced that most communities hold key to their own problems and it is possible to learn from, seek and adapt local solutions for better service delivery.
