I am a Public Health professional specializing in reproductive health, working for Jimma University College of Public Health and Medical Sciences - Department of Population and Family Health as Lecturer of Reproductive Health and Nutrition. I also work as a Trainer of Sexual and Reproductive Health of Adolescents in “Dana peer to peer education program”, Focal person of Public Health Officers Association of Ethiopia, and review articles in the Journal of Health Sciences.
My previous experiences include working as a Medical Director in different primary health centers for 2 years. As Director of the different health centers, my main responsibilities were planning, implementing and managing the health services of the ‘Kebele’ (district) where each health center was located. I was also responsible for running the routine promotion, preventive, curative and rehabilitation services of the health centers and conducting training for Health Extension Workers, Community Health Agents and Nurses within the catchment area.
I am very fanatical about improving the lives of Ethiopian women through betterment of access and quality of SRH services - especially family planning, ensuring women’s equality and fighting against gender-based violence.
