My point of interest is health system strengthening. I have quite a good experience in primary health care management, auditing and pandemic surveillance. Along with these, with the experience gained I like to work on research and research paper writing on primary health care and outbreak surveillance in future.


This internship taught me that it is possible for a public health individual to collect data, analysis and produce papers that can be useful in future for policy making process. Collection of data from government website about new policies and comparing it with current status of pandemic is completely new to me. Thanks to FHTS for letting me to know the importance and experience the importance of data informatics in the field of public health.
