My name is Gonzaga Gonza Ssenyondo and I am 44 years old. I prefer being called Gonza; it makes life easier for me. I am married with 3 beautiful children aged 12, 6 and 5 years.
I graduated from Makerere University, Uganda with a Bachelor’s Degree in Medicine and Surgery in 1996. I pursued and completed a master’s degree in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the same university in 2003. In 2010 I obtained a master’s degree in Public Health (Disease Control – RH Option) from the Institute of Tropical Medicine Antwerp Belgium. I have also done international short courses in sexual and reproductive health in Sweden and Belgium.
Currently I work as a Consultant Obstetrician/Gynaecologist and RH Disease Control Specialist at Masaka Regional Referral Hospital in the south central region of Uganda. I also double as the head of Dept. of Obstetrics & Gynaecology in this hospital. Apart from clinical practice; I do also engage in providing continuous medical education within the region and training of student nurses, clinical/medical assistants and intern doctors.
This makes me somehow busy but still with some spare time to always learn something new and keep up to date with the latest developments in sexual and reproductive health. For me, success at the end of this course will not be limited to the gaining of more knowledge and skills that will further my career; But more importantly, it will be embodied in my ability to share this experience with fellow health providers.
