Hugo Flores Navarro
Master of Global Affairs ’21
Hugo manages the Clinton Health Access Initiative Malaria Program in Guatemala. His team advises the national government in health policy strategies.
A physician from Mexico, Flores Navarro says the Keough School helped prepare him for this new role, where he routinely interacts with national and regional representatives from multilateral bodies such as the Inter-American Development Bank and the Pan American Health Organization.
“Understanding how organizational, political, and economic factors interact with health policy and why it is hard to make policy changes has been crucial,” he says. At the Keough School, Flores Navarro gained essential insights on ways to frame and position a policy change for different audiences.
He says the Keough School’s Master of Global Affairs is “an excellent opportunity to learn from wonderful professors across many disciplines—and from a genuinely diverse cohort made up of students from all over the world and all types of backgrounds.”
