CorinaMy name is Corina Ghidirim and I am privileged to join the RESULTS UK team as the Administrator for the TB Europe Coalition (TBEC). My role is to support the TBEC team in implementing its strategy to support and strengthen the work of TB advocates in the WHO European Region. I am from the Republic of Moldova, where I started my career as a teacher of English. However, when my country embarked on the path of independent development, I switched to working as a freelance translator and interpreter for international organizations and companies, such as IMF, World Bank, UNDP, OSCE, WHO and Price Waterhouse LLP, which provided technical assistance to Moldova in implementing reforms. In 2001, I briefly accepted the challenge of working as a Counter Trafficking Assistant Program Officer at the International Organization for Migration Mission in Kosovo. For over six years, I held the full time position of Translator/Interpreter at the USAID Regional Mission to Ukraine, Belarus and Moldova, Office in Chisinau. In this capacity, I also provided administrative support to the staff members, as well as covered the duties of Development Outreach and Communications staff during their leave. USAID funded numerous projects in Moldova across various sectors, including Strengthening Tuberculosis Control in Moldova Project implemented by the American International Health Alliance and Preventing HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis B and C Project implemented by the Emerging Markets Group. I started considering a career in international development during my work at USAID. I have a special interest and predilection for health and education, but I am willing to do anything related to relieving pain or opening doors to less fortunate people.
