Elvis García González
President - Harvard Spain Students Association
For the past ten years, Elvis García has been working with the international organization Doctors Without Borders.
His experience in HQ and the field, working both in protracted crisis and acute emergency situations, has taken him to Africa (Liberia, Somalia, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo, Sudan, Uganda, Malawi), Asia (Yemen, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran), and Latin America and the Caribbean (Haiti, El Salvador, Colombia). During this time and due to his close experiences to harsh circumstances, he has developed a growing interest in promoting capacity building strategies in developing countries to upgrade health care systems, aiming to improve local resilience and reduce the likelihood of public health crises. To that end, he also studied a MPA by the Universidad Complutense de Madrid and a MSc in Advanced Techniques in Architecture from Universidad Europea de Madrid, which served as a complement to his background BSc & Master of Industrial Engineering from the Universidad de Oviedo.
