Bio

I am an Anaesthesiologist in Uganda, and competitively won the National Institutes of Health award as a Global Health Fellow - 2014/2015.

As the first anaesthesiologist in the continent to receive this prestigious award, I continue to advocate for safe anaesthesia for mothers and babies and timely management of obstetric and neonatal emergencies in the region. No mother should die while giving life, and there is urgent need to strengthen health systems in sub saharan Africa to improve maternal and neonatal outcomes.
