Nita Asamoa-Manu Gyimah, BSc Human Biology, MBChB
Resident, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, Accra, Ghana

I obtained a BSc (Human Biology) and MBChB degrees from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology School of Medical Sciences in 2011. I worked as a medical officer in the department of obstetrics and gynaecology at the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital in the Central Region from May 2014 where I was involved in outreach programmes (in collaboration with Marie Stopes International, Ghana). I provided free reproductive health and family planning services (especially long acting and permanent methods) to underserved communities within the region.

I was actively involved in training maternity care workers in Life Saving Skills (LSS) and Emergency Obstetric and Newborn Care (EmONC) as part of the Making it Happen programme by Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM).

I also teach Clinical skills (on part time basis) at the University of Cape Coast, School of Medical Sciences (UCCSMS).

I am currently pursuing residency training in obstetrics and gynaecology at Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, Accra. I am part of a research team working on a project to assess the effectiveness of misoprostol in the prevention of primary postpartum haemorrhage at the hospital.

I speak English and understand a little of French.
