Graciela Cadet

Graciela Cadet was born and raised in Port-au-Prince, Haiti and attended the national nursing school (Ecole Nationale d’Infirmieres de Port-au-Prince). She has worked as a nurse for seven years and became the nurse manager of the Intensive Care Unit at Hôpital Universitaire de Mirebalais in 2013. Graciela has worked for Zamni Lasante (ZL), the sister organization of Partners in Health, for over three years, and has come to see the organization as a driving force in social justice and a key player in the promotion of equity in health. She is particularly interested in quality improvement, advocacy, and strengthening the Haitian health system, and has continued to pursue training in public health management. She believes through this fellowship she will gain the skills needed to lead the effort in making a difference at the hospital she works, in the country where she comes from, and advocating for marginalized populations around the world. Graciela was a fellow at Zanmi Lasante in Haiti.
