I worked with The AIDS Support Organization (TASO) Uganda Limited as a Nurse clinician from 1/4/2006 to 31/8/2013. From 9th September 2013 to date I assumed my current position of the regional quality improvement officer under the district led implementation using the health systems strengthening approach of scaling up HIV prevention care and support in West Nile region. Health care quality improvement requires a holistic approach of testing changes for improvement in all aspects of the health care delivery system such as maternal child health, VMMC, PMTCT/EID, HIV/AIDS care and support, curative medical care and preventive community based healthcare services among others. I think this course will go a long way in helping achieve my personal mission of helping communities, families and individuals make informed decisions about their health particularly sexual and reproductive health and their wellbeing (empowerment), build my research capacity in reproductive health and fast-track my entry into a PHD program.
