There, he was actively involved in several research projects such as the analysis of access to and use of modern contraceptive methods among adolescents and young women, the mapping of health care purchasing strategies in Benin, the analysis of the financing of the COVID19 response in Benin, data analysis for the monitoring of maternal/neonatal deaths in Benin, analysis of the relevance of technological platforms for the democratization and improvement of the health system in Benin, etc.
Also, Credo worked as a consultant for the Strategic Purchasing Africa Resource Center (SPARC Africa) to document the financing of the COVID19 response in Benin and later for the Population Reference Bureau for the analysis of policy documents related to the reproductive health of young people in some francophone countries.
Since October 2020, Credo has enrolled in a Ph.D. program in Global Health Sciences at the University of Ryukyus in Okinawa/Japan.
This phrase is one of my motivations to never give up, even when it's hard. Global health requires self-sacrifice because efforts can sometimes be slow to give the expected improvement in the health of people. My academic experience at the University of Ryukyus will allow me to learn and improve my skills to better contribute to the health of populations not only in my country Benin, but wherever I have the chance to intervene in the world.
