Anita Namuyaba, Uganda Program and Operations Coordinator

Health care is a system that requires different components and skills coming together to ensure its accessibility and delivery to all people. I strongly believe that the work we do in mobilizing youth from all walks of the professional spectrum and rallying them towards a common goal is a fundamental step in achieving health equity.

Prior to joining GHC, Anita Volunteered in the health care systems planning and resource mobilization departments of The AIDS Support Organization (TASO) where she assisted in the implementation of HIV/AIDS and partnership programs. She was also part of the conceptualization and execution of local resource mobilization drives that attained funding for key organization projects. Anita was privileged to have been chosen to be mentored under the USAID/ Uganda’s Health Initiatives for the Private Sector (HIPS) Project that was implemented by Cardno Emerging Markets USA, Ltd (Cardno). As a mentee of the program her focus was on integration of HIV/AIDS and FP programs in school curricular. In 2010, she co-founded a youth platform that provided opportunities for eager, passionate youth to gain employability skills in preparation for the job market. She is an alumnus of the Young African Leaders Initiative Regional Leadership Center (YALI RLC) in Nairobi. A current member of the Roteract club in her country, Anita is passionate about bringing positive change and making a positive impact in her community. She has a Bachelors of Business Administration in Health Management from the International Health Science University and is embarking on a Master’s in Public Health from the International Health Sciences University in Uganda.
