Raphael Aguiar, MSc
With over 10 years of experience in the field, Raphael Aguiar has lived and worked in Iraq, Cape Verde, Sierra Leone, East Timor, Kosovo and Cameroon. He has participated in projects and short assignments in other countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East.
Raphael started working in International Development as a Project Manager for the international NGO Humanity and Inclusion (Handicap International) in 2007. There, he led projects in both humanitarian and development settings. Working with rights-based and field-based approaches, he had the opportunity to advance health equity and disability issues, focusing on primary healthcare advocacy and delivery, while working on a range of other social and public health themes.
Subsequently Raphael joined the UN Department of Peacekeeping Operations where he led units focused on information management and human rights violations, and addressed administrative and mission-related issues. Most recently, Raphael worked at the UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordination Office in Cameroon.
With a Bachelor in Physiotherapy from Brazil, and a MSc with honors in Social and Cultural Anthropology from Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Raphael entered the Doctoral Program in Health Policy and Equity at York University in 2019. His interests revolve around the global health impact of recent patterns of consumption, networking and communication. He plans to focus his research on multisectoral governance approaches to emerging global health challenges.
