Meredith Potts recognized as a 2017 Change Maker by The Economist
FIRE's Executive Director, Meredith Potts, was recognized as both a  Hepatitis C Change Maker and  2017 Honouree by The Economist Intelligence Unit


Meredith was recognized for leading FIRE's work in Mongolia bringing hepatitis screenings to thousands of rural Mongolians without health insurance.  "The Path to Zero" programme features innovators from around the world doing exemplary work to eliminate hepatitis C. This was the third time in 2017 that the Economist has highlighted FIRE's work.

Congratulations Meredith and FIRE Mongolia!
"Hepatitis Free Mongolia"
