Elina Mariutsa

Programme Support Officer

Switzerland

My name is Elina Mariutsa, and I was born in Russia to a Ukrainian-Kazakh family. My role as a Programme Support Officer, based in Geneva, entails the application of peace responsiveness to advance health and peace agenda, specifically in Ukraine, addressing the lack of popular trust in the health system and other institutions in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. It makes my heart full knowing that the work that I do makes the world a little more peaceful every day.
