Halima Mukaddas, MD, Obstetrician/Gynaecologist
Senior Preservice Education Advisor, Targeted States High Impact Project, Bauchi, Nigeria
I am Halima Mukaddas, a female Nigerian Obstetrician/gynaecologist with a public Health background. I had been working with a USAID funded project as an Advisor in Preservice Education in Bauchi State where I am responsible for assisting and providing technical guidance to health related training schools to organize and train students, strengthen their curricula and ensure education is in line with competency based approaches. I will be transiting that position to be the Head of Clinical Services in a new Obstetric Fistula Center, Ningi, Bauchi State in North Eastern Nigeria in the next couple of months. I am from Northeastern Nigeria, so my work is in my hometown helping my people. I am married with Kids and I am passionate on RH.
