My hometown is Toliara, so I have always been close to the coastal community. I am a health worker, and I have been working for several years with organizations in the fields of health and the environment (and sustainable development) such as the NGO Taratra and Soarano, ACF, NGO ReefDoctor, etc. That’s why? because people can improve and protect the heealth, the environment and livelihoods within their villages when they are healthy. Many times ago I felt that the state of health of the community is a big part of a successful life, which is why I chose to use my knowledge in this particular area (Integration approach). Today, I am working with Blue Ventures to improve the health of communities and integrate the health agenda into our marine conservation work. Personally, I think it’s a priority to make a difference in the environment.
