Coalition for Women's Health Africa (COWHA)
Project Manager
Years of experience in various settings as a midwife motivated me to pursue a master's degree in Public Health to to continue advocating for equitable access to quality healthcare. 

My passion is to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to start a healthy life well before conception, breaking the cycle of social, economic, and health inequalities. With extensive clinical health experience and project leadership skills, I focus on the areas of sexual and reproductive health, infectious diseases, health access, and health equity within the Public Health field.

As the Project Manager of COWHA, I will continue working towards promoting and implementing sustainable health solutions for underserved communities. I aim to foster partnerships and collaboration with stakeholders to drive evidence-based interventions that positively impact health outcomes.
