Urszula is our PHE Support Officer in Mozambique; working to support our marine conservation partners to integrate community health services into their coastal resource management programmes by developing collaborations with health organisations. Before joining Blue Ventures, Urszula served as a community health and organisational strengthening volunteer with the Peace Corps in Mozambique. During this time, she fell in love with the country and its people. Having lived in a Mozambican fishing community, she appreciates the importance of Blue Ventures’ holistic approach and is delighted to be combining her passions for public health and environmental conservation in this role. Urszula holds a Masters in Public Health from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, and further developed her skills in public health by working as a sexual health educator and HIV counsellor. In her spare time she enjoys swimming, canoeing and dancing (albeit horribly). She speaks excellent Portuguese, loves to travel, try new foods, meet new people and learn about different cultures.
New beginnings across the Mozambique Channel
Support partnerships with the Endangered Wildlife Trust and Peace Parks Foundation are set to integrate community health services into coastal resource management efforts in two of Mozambique’s most critical marine ecosystems.
