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 where she assisted in the implementation of HIV/AIDS and partnership programs and local resource mobilization drives. Anita was mentored under the USAID/ Uganda’s Health Initiatives for the Private Sector Project, with a focus on integrating HIV/AIDS and FP programs in school curricular. She co-founded a youth platform that provided opportunities for youth to gain employability skills. She has a Bachelor of Business Administration in health management from the International Health Science University and is working towards a Master of Public Health from the International Health Sciences University in Uganda. She is an alumnus of the Young African Leaders Initiative Regional Leadership Center in Nairobi. A member of the Rotaract club, Anita is passionate about bringing positive change and making an impact in her community.
