Ana Luíza Gibertoni Cruz


Individual PartnerAna Luíza Gibertoni Cruz, MD MPH, Infectious Diseases/Microbiology Specialist Registrar and Clinical Research Fellow with Modernising Medical Microbiology at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford


Brief Description of WorkI am an Infectious Disease (ID) physician trained in Brazil, currently in the UK forging a career that combines clinical management of ID and policy research, particularly in the field of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis diagnostics, management and control. My previous work with underserved populations in Brazil, Haiti and Kyrgyzstan, and now in England, in a time of unprecedented pressures over the NHS, have driven home to me the central importance of understanding diseases in their wider context and truly involving patients in the decision-making process as a path towards mitigating inequity and inequality in health, and improving outcomes.
