Senior Technical/Clinical Advisor-SRH/MNCH

2022 Leadership Journey Project: Creating Transformative Quality of Care Approaches that Foster Agency & Empowerment of Women & Girls

I am a Senior Clinical /Technical Advisor for Sexual Reproductive Health (SRH) and Maternal Child Health (MNCH) at PSI where I support a service delivery portfolio that spans over 30 countries in MNCH, FP, SRH programs. I support PSI country staff to develop robust quality assurance/improvement systems. I am a medical doctor and public health professional with over 18 years’ experience in both clinical settings and NGO settings. I started off my clinical career by working at Rubaga Hospital, a faith-based mission funded hospital followed by a stint at Mulago National Referral Hospital. At Mulago hospital, I was discouraged by the level of poverty, suffering, and overcrowding at the national hospital and I quickly realized that I wanted to have a much bigger impact than I could while seeing patients one on one. After much thought, I ventured into the public health arena as a medical detailer promoting family planning access to the then new method of injectable contraceptives.

I have since seen and been a part of the SRH and MNCH growth in Uganda, contributing to the introduction of new contraceptive methods such as implants and intra uterine contraceptive devices especially in the private sector in Uganda. I have worked as the Programs Director at PSI/Uganda and as the Quality Assurance Regional Lead for East and Southern Africa where I provided leadership oversight and technical assistance helping PSI to achieve remarkable success in building public and private sector capacity in Sexual & Reproductive Health, FP & Maternal and Child Health programs in Anglophone Africa. As my career grew, I joined the global quality of care team at PSI as a Senior Clinical Advisor where I support all PSI programs throughout East and Southern Africa, Asia, and Latin America. I support countries that include Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Nigeria and Eswatini to improve their quality-of-care approaches in their service delivery programs.
