About Me

I am Harriet based in Uganda. I am registered nurse with a working experience of 15 years. I worked with Cordaid in 2016-18, CUAM(Doctors With Africa) in 2010-2011 AND AAA in 2006-2015 in South Sudan. I was Senior Midwife with Cordaid, CUAM as In Charge of Primary Health Care, AAA as TB/lEPROSY OFFICER.

And in Uganda i worked as Kitovu Mobile as a registered nurse and Uganda Cares as Registered Nurse and MUHJUS in Mulago Hospital. I am currently the President of Good Health For Rural Communities based in Masaka City of Uganda. I am a mother of 3 children. It is my passion to see that the health status of rural communities is improved because no much attention is given to rural humanity as far as good health programs and facilities are concerned.
