I have worked in a wide variety of clinical and public health settings and am interested in health system strengthening and capacity development of Ministries of Health and local NGO's to develop independent programs to apply and implement grants and implement public health programs. Specific interests include strengthening of clinical facilities, informatics, VMMC and transition whenever possible of grants from UW to local NGO's as a social justice matter.
