Sergio Jesus Romero Alvarado - Nicaragua


Sergio manages our safe water program in Nicaragua, where he helps rural communities gain affordable, clean drinking water. He trains village leaders to install CTI’s water chlorinators and test their water to ensure it’s safe to drink. Sergio’s tireless efforts for the health of rural communities have earned him respect among village leaders, enabling CTI to provide sustainable, safe drinking water for thousands.

Prior to joining CTI in 2009, Sergio led a 20 year career in public health as an epidemiologist with the Matagalpa Department of the Ministry of Health. He graduated with a degree in Professional Hygiene and Epidemiology from the Cienfuegos Health Polytechnic Institute in Cuba in 1985.
