I am a dedicated young man with special interest in infectious diseases (such as HIV, Viral hepatitis Malaria, and Tuberculosis) that affect the health of women and children who remain least reached with essential health interventions in most low and middle-income countries.
I earned my medical degree (MBChB, 2006) from Mbarara University and a Master’s in Public Health Methodology (MPH, 2012) from the Université Libré de Bruxelles. I completed a Fellowship program (MakSPH-CDC, 2014) from Makerere University School of Public Health.
I have worked with Fort Portal Regional Referral Hospital (FRRH), Non-governmental organizations such as Joint Clinical Research Centre (JCRC) which championed scale up of anti-retroviral treatment in Uganda in the late 90’s, Baylor-Uganda Children’s Foundation and Makerere University school of Public health.
In these organizations, my capacity has been built in various areas such as HIV/AIDS, Maternal Child Newborn Health (MNCH), leadership and management. I, in addition, progressively acquired experience in clinical care of patients, Implementation of health Intervention projects (with quality improvement approaches), Capacity building, Monitoring and evaluation of health programs, plus Clinical and Community Health related Research.
I have devout interest in developing novel interventions in improving access to health care among women, children, and adolescents- who remain least reached with basic health care services.
I am currently a Postgraduate Academic Mobility for African-Scientist fellow (PAMAPS), based at University of Yaoundé 1, Cameroon.
