HeeNa ThaPa

Research Officer

My name is Heena Thapa from Nepal, I am a recent graduate student in International Public Health from Liverpool John Moore’s University. Being a student of Public Health, observing health inequalities data for example life expectancy of UK is 81.16 and Nepal is 70.788, has motivated me to work for health. I always see myself, counting my little efforts in reducing health inequalities especially for Low and Middle Income Countries. Expanding an understanding of health determinants that could benefit population to uplift the health of a nation is my overall goal, and this is what Africa Health Organization is exactly doing, which becomes the main reason why I joined Africa health Organization as a Research Officer Volunteer. As past experiences as research officer, data entry and analyst staff in various NGOs in Nepal, I hope I could justify my position for AFO as well. Near future, I am hoping to join PHD to explore more in health inequalities and work for it.
