Daniela Cepeda Cuadrado

Senior Adviser

I am a public policy professional with experience working in the fields of anti-corruption, health, and sustainable development.

At U4, I am a Senior Adviser, leading the research and policy portfolios on health and human rights. I am interested in how anti-corruption measures can lead to stronger health systems and better health outcomes, as well as the nexus between human rights and anti-corruption. Additionally, I coordinate U4’s in-country engagements, ensuring the smooth development of onsite anti-corruption training.

Previously, I worked as a Researcher at Transparency International Global Health, where I developed research funding proposals, engaged with WHO and the private sector, and conducted policy advocacy as part of the Action for Global Health Network. I also worked as Research Fellow at the United Nations System Staff College, contributing to learning and training initiatives for sustainable development. There, I designed and developed the UNDP–UNSSC online course “Anti-Corruption in the Context of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”.

I hold a Bachelor of Political, Economic, and Social Sciences (Honours) from the University of Sydney, a Master of Public Policy from the Hertie School of Governance in Berlin, and a Certificate in Data and Policy from University of Chicago.
