Anita Namuyaba, Uganda Program and Operations Manager
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 where she assisted in the implementation of HIV/AIDS and partnership programs and local resource mobilization drives. Anita was mentored under the USAID/Uganda Health Initiative for the private sector project with a focus on integrating HIV/AIDS and family planning programs in school curricula. She co-founded a youth platform that provided opportunities for youth to gain employability skills. She holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration in health management from the International Health Science University and holds a master’s degree in public health from the International Health Sciences University in Uganda. She is an alumna of the Young African Leaders Initiative Regional Leadership Center in Nairobi, a member of the Rotaract club, and is passionate about bringing positive change and making an impact in her community.
Fun Fact: Anita’s obsession is going to see live bands and concerts. Paired with ice cream or a good milkshake, she would have the perfect day.
