Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2011
This description of Pilar Mateo Herrero's work was prepared when Pilar Mateo Herrero was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2011.
Pilar Mateo Herrero breaks the link between poverty and disease through a community-based approach that creates sustained change in communities and living environments in developing countries. Accelerated by a new painting technology that effectively eradicates diseases like Chagas, dengue fever, and malaria, Pilar combines methodologies and local development efforts to improve health, economic development, and community mobilization.
