UQ Alumnus of the Year award winners

Dr Ana Charles, Master of Public Health

Dr Charles was awarded the UQ International Alumnus of the Year in 2013.  The international alumnus award recognises and honours the outstanding achievements of an international alumnus who has realised distinction in their chosen field and whose accomplishments enhance the prestige of the University.

Dr Ana Charles is the Provincial Coordinator of the Ariel Foundation in Mozambique, which works to increase and support countries to expand HIV programs and empower local partners. She was formerly coordinator of the Elisabeth Glaser Paediatric AIDS Foundation, which works to eliminate paediatric AIDS by providing education, care and treatment for people living with AIDS.

Dr Charles has been working to prevent paediatric HIV and AIDS since 2010 and has worked for the Mozambique government in public and environmental health. Currently she is Head of the Mozambique-Australia Alumni Association, known as “AMEA”. She is widely respected for her leadership, passion and versatility, and for her work in helping people live healthy and productive lives.

I help others to pursue their dreams regardless of age, gender or professional pathway. This is part of the skill I gained while studying at UQ: to think broadly yet act locally.
