Presently working as Research Fellow/PI Mental Health Beyond Facilities, a GCC funded project based at Makerere University School of Public Health. My goal is to strengthen mental health policy, planning and financing in sub Saharan Africa and other LMIC. I worked as National Mental Health Coordinator in Uganda from 1996 to 2000 where I was able to get mental health integrated into the health policy. From 2000 to 2006, I worked at the World Bank in Washington DC, doing analytic activities, knowledge management, operations and partnership activities. I have an interest in the area of gender and health, and have consulted for Population Council, UNFPA, ECA and AU.
