Mozambique – Alzira


Country of study: Brazil Home Country: Mozambique Undergraduate Degree: Nursing

Alzira is an AAI Scholar from Mozambique, currently studying Nursing. After a year of Preparation Camp with Ashinaga, she joined the USP School of Nursing through a Student Exchange Program, which is an academic and cultural exchange that has been around since 1965, with the aim to strengthen the relations between Brazil and other countries. 
Alzira has high expectations that her knowledge will be useful to improve public health in Mozambique. “Because of the latest events with COVID-19, I am very interested in studying epidemiology. There are many regions where information on how to prevent diseases isn’t enough, so, diseases like cholera still affect several regions in Mozambique. I want to create campaigns about hygiene for the population and change that reality.”
