I first met Aleksandra Kuzmanovic on Twitter. I was tagged in a Tweet she sent where Dr Mike Ryan, of the World Health Organisation applauded the work of his media and social media team, describing them as the ‘silent heroes’ in the fight against COVID-19.

She followed me back, I DM’d her. told her about my work and this podcast and the rest is Twitter history.

Aleksandra Kuzmanovic has served as Social Media Manager at the World Health Organization (WHO) Headquarters since July 2018.

She is co-managing WHO’s presence on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, TikTok and Snapchat, supporting WHO top leaders in social media activities, and leading social media-related partnerships including those on fighting COVID-19 misinformation.

She joined WHO in March 2015 and served as Communications Consultant in the Department of Public Health and Environment prior to her current position.

Before I play the interview, I want you to listen to the excerpt from the WHO press conference on April 17 2020 when Dr Mike Ryan paid tribute to the work of his social media team.
