Sofia Ferreira

Public Health Advisor Directorate-General of Health (Portugal)

Under the auspices of the DGH and with the support of the WHO, Sophia developed the ePORTUGUESe platform to support the development of human resources for health in Portuguese-speaking member states. The platform ultimately facilitates collaboration among the participating institutions, delivers health information, and promotes capacity building. Sophia previously worked on a number of projects including a nationwide smoking cessation programme, so she is no stranger to implementing large projects with DGH.
