Joanna Filopoulos

Policy and Research

Hello! My name is Joanna Filopoulos, and I am a student at the University of East Anglia (UEA) in the MSc Impact Evaluation for International Development Program. My background is in Global Public Health and International Studies. I have done various health-related projects in Latin/South America, with a focus on health education and disease prevention. I enjoy grassroots community work, traveling, and learning about other cultures. My academic interests include improving health services for low-income areas through capacity building. Also, using research/data to improve the impact of development programs on their beneficiaries. I am excited to be volunteering for AHO as a Policy and Research Intern! The organization’s structure and mission are set up to try to benefit the most marginalized communities, using research to guide its strategy. I hope to provide a positive impact during my time here.
