About Melino Ndayizigiye
I am a physician, trained at the National University of Burundi and worked as a general practitioner first in a private clinic in Bujumbura (CMCC-Jabe) and in a rural district hospital of Matana and then, I joined Village Health Works, an Nonprofit Organization which provides health care in a rural remote area of Kigutu since 2008. I was trained and certified in obstetric emergency surgery and completed two courses in ultrasound and management of pediatric HIV/AIDS . Village Health Works runs government supported programs in management of HIV/AIDS, TB, malnutrition, maternal health, childhood vaccinations, and neglected tropical diseases in a catchment area of about 100,000 people. Born and raised in this area where there was no access to health care and where poverty and misery are affecting people in many ways, I have been ambitious of bringing modern medicine by implementing and developing health care and socio-economic programs in rural poor settings.
