Meet our new peer health education coordinator in Djibouti
Houssein Youssouf has been a successful peer health educator since the start of our programme in Djibouti. Dedication towards the most vulnerable people in his community drives him, while raising awareness about the many new cases of tuberculosis and HIV in his community has become his fully-fledged objective. As of the 1st of November, Houssein now organises and coordinates BE Health’s team activities at Djibouti Palace Kempinski and in his team’s local communities. During the coming year, Houssein and his team will address TB and HIV questions among their colleagues, as well as in high schools, in collaboration with Djibouti’s Ministry of Education. They also will facilitate health workshops with Caritas-Djibouti which takes care of more than 80 street kids every day. Houssein and his team know that clear communication and education will contribute to stop the transmission of Tb and HIV in their country.
