Heleen Van Mieghem started in January as our new colleague in the PROMISE team.
She will mainly focus on PrEP in relation to sex workers.
Heleen is a general practitioner and graduated in ‘International Health Care and Tropical Medicine’. For years she worked as a doctor in various hospitals in Africa. Back in Belgium, she started working for Violett, a non-profit organisation that provides medical assistance to sex workers.
As a junior researcher for PROMISE, Heleen will focus on PrEP for the specific target group of sex workers.
We wish her all the best with her new challenge!
