Success story: Nego Alwin

Nego Alwin is a health information systems officer at the Vanuatu Ministry of Health. He is currently undertaking POLHN-sponsored courses at Fiji National University in the field of public health, and spoke to POLHN to share some of his experiences.

Tell us something about your work and yourself.

I’m Nego Alwin from Vanuatu. I find POLHN very useful as it has helped me to further my study via the internet. Prior to taking courses under sponsorship of POLHN I graduated with a Bachelor of Public Health from Fiji National University in 2013. Now I am taking up the responsibility as a HOD of the Health Information System Unit. I love learning and I CHOOSE POLHN.

How did you find out about POLHN?

Through the Vanuatu POLHN Country Coordinator – Marina Laklotal.

What do you study with POLHN?

So far I have gained a number of Global Health eLearning certificates through POLHN. I have also undertaken some courses from Fiji National University (FNU), for the Postgraduate Certificate in Health Service Management.

Share your best quote.

A man who graduates today and stops learning tomorrow is uneducated the day after.
