I’m Dr. Marta Lado, I’ve battled pandemics for the last 8 years in 3 countries and now work to prepare and respond to the next pandemic, AMA about Monkeypox!
I work with Partners In Health (PIH) as a senior clinical cross-site advisor in Infectious diseases, Pandemic preparedness and response, and Clinical Excellence based in West Africa, Sierra Leone.
Monkeypox has been a headline on the news lately. It continues to affect those in our communities and is spreading to locations it hasn’t typically been detected before.
I am an Internal Medicine doctor specializing in Infectious diseases. I have worked clinically for more than 15 years in different settings, from Spain, India to West and East Africa. I was a chief medical officer with PIH Sierra Leone, where I helped lead the response to Ebola in 2014. I fought stigma and continued to build up the health system in the years that followed. I also have experience working with the World Health Organization. Through each role, I firmly believe that everyone deserves high-quality health care. At PIH, I fight to deliver that to some of the world’s most marginalized communities.
Drawing on my numerous years of experience fighting infectious diseases, I’m here to answer any questions you may have on Monkeypox. I’ll start answering questions now, so ama!
