Attica Giselle Akesse Kone

Health Promotion

I am Attica Kone. I come from Ivory Coast. I have a Master’s degree in Education Health promotion and International development from UCL/IOE. I decided to specialize in health promotion because I have a passion helping people to improve their health and well- being and preventing them being sick. This passion developed when I was a student in communications in the Ivory coast. In fact, during my work placement I worked with the Ivorian Association of Social Marketing (AIMAS). I was part of the communication team who developed a communication strategy to promote safe sex and organised health awareness programmes. We also planned and delivered outreach programmes to rural areas to educate young people and adults on family planning. I finally also worked with the ministry of environment in the Ivory Coast on a project aiming to educate populations on safe waste disposal.
