At the frontline
Monday, 4 March 2019
This International Women’s Day we are proud to shine a light on the outstanding success of some of our female alumni.
Neima Candy (M Public Health 2013) is a public health professional, whose work has impacted her community, country and the world. Neima was a leading force in the Red Cross’s response to the Ebola outbreak in Liberia, challenging gender roles and norms and inspiring future generations of Liberian women. Neima was at the frontline of fighting Ebola, and her leadership and commitment directly contributed to Liberia being declared Ebola free in 2015.
Neima has also contributed to Liberia’s Ministry of Health mandate in restoring Health Services through the implementation of the World Health Organisation’s Essential Package of Health Services.
