"I joined ThinkWell to improve my expertise in the field of social protection and population health for equitable access to quality health care. By integrating a multidisciplinary team that uses an analytical approach and promotes dialogue between partners, I firmly believe that I have the opportunity to implement actions based on scientific evidence to change the well-being of living communities in developing and transition countries."
