About Us


Healthy Start was born as a completely student driven program however since 2010 many of our students have graduated and are now working health professionals. Healthy Start is thus run by both Doctors, Nurses, Dentists and health students. The people below are involved with the management of Healthy Start over the years.  All of them dedicate their time to the cause on a voluntary basis and the program would never exist without their love and endless work.

The Founding Team:
Healthy Start was created with the collaborative work of a small team of Medical students during their studies from 2010 onward. A special thanks goes to them as they spent years of their own time making sure this program was a success.
