Interests: Health
I am pediatrician and researcher in the area of TB and HIV. Currently working in a project on understanding and improving the access and retention to HIV care in Mozambique, Manhiça District in Maputo. The initial results of our qualitative analysis all point out to the absolute necessity to address patients rights to health and information as one of the most important steps in improving health outcomes. I have been thrilled to see the manual " direito a saude" and look forward to the District being able to introduce tools such as this one.
