Hello, I am Alexandra Letcher and I joined MRF in June 2016 as Projects Coordinator. My role is to support the planning, implementation and monitoring of our international projects, with a specific focus on our Action Meningitis health project in Blantyre, Malawi.
In collaboration with the Malawian Ministry of Health and other partners, we are working to train local healthcare workers and introduce a WHO-approved triage system in clinics using mobile phone technology in order to improve the treatment of seriously ill children.
With a background in development and humanitarian work in sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East, I am a passionate advocate of strengthening healthcare systems through building the capacity of healthcare workers in cooperation with national governments. I am delighted to have joined the MRF team as it looks to expand its international reach and impact.
