Director, Clarion I

Bio Current as of September 6, 2022

Raquel Peck is a well-known, long time advocate in the field of liver health and prior to founding her consulting company in 2018 (Clarion I.), she spent over 15 years advocating on behalf of people living with viral hepatitis. As a patient herself, she helped establish and eventually became the CEO of the World Hepatitis Alliance, an international organisation composed of 300+ groups in over 90 countries. Raquel’s work in the field was integral to the adoption of three World Health Organisation resolutions – one of which she drafted on behalf of the government of Brazil – and now viral hepatitis features in the Sustainable Development Goals’ agenda, with a clear goal of elimination by 2030. Raquel also started a global movement (NOhep) to unite and strengthen the viral hepatitis community and was recognised as a change-maker by the Economist Intelligence Unit. Since founding Clarion I., she has been consulting for organisations and initiatives driving progressive change i.e. helping to shape strategy and content for the International Experience Exchange with Patient Organisations (as the Chair of this amazing initiative); building the first ever international liver cancer movement from the ground up to catalyse efforts in the space; working with the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative to lift up rare disease patient-led research networks; and working with WHO developing strategies to manage COVID 19 infodemic through effective community engagement.
