Senior Program Manager

The greatest joy in my 18 years of work experience would be the creation of solutions that are sustainable and empowering. I gained a deep sense of satisfaction when ensuring the greatest return on investment for the beneficiaries I work with. My exposure to health access  in low, middle and high income countries has consistently revealed that inequality exists across them all. These inequalities exist for various reasons and some if not most can be adequately addressed, with proper planning and resource mobilization, which is a challenge that I have tried to address through my work
My business management qualifications coupled with my 20 years of experience in Public Health and Health Promotion (across NGO, Government and Academic institutions- in South Africa and Singapore) is something I lean on heavily when I am in the midst of looking for effective, sustainable and innovative solutions.
