Until 2012, Mr. Diallo was the United Nations Resident Coordinator, Humanitarian Coordinator and UNDP Resident Representative in Asmara, Eritrea. He served as Representative of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) in Mali from 2005 to 2009 and in Sierra Leone from 2001 to 2005. Prior to these assignments, he served as Regional Advisor in positions dealing with maternal health and family planning issues with UNFPA in Senegal and in the DRC, and as a medical doctor and Chief of Medical Staff in Guinea.

 

A medical doctor from the Université de Conakry School of Medicine (Guinea), Mr. Diallo also holds a Master’s Degree in Public Health from San Diego State University in California (USA) and a Diplôme spécial de santé publique from the Université catholique de Louvain (Belgium).
