I have worked for Malawi ministry of health at Mzuzu Central Hospital as a Laboratory Technologist as the head of the department for Molecular laboratory for 12 years. In 2019, I started work at Partners in Hope as HIV/AIDS Testing and Linkage Services as a program coordinator. My main responsibilities were; Program planning, monitoring and evaluation of key program indicators and HIV testing services supply chain management,
During my work, I have gained tremendous skills in project cycle management, leadership, supervision and mentorship.
Malawi and its neighbouring countries are still being menaced by infectious diseases, largely due to poor sanitation; refuse, sewage and drainage systems, poor food and personal hygiene and less vibrant health promotion activities. I believe that by studying at the University of the Ryukyus, I will not only gain knowledge and skills in global health management, but I will also be exposed to a world-class scientist in the field of research and healthcare.
After graduating from the University of the Ryukyus, I'd worked in Ryukyu University for 5 years. Then I also worked in a nursing homes, our university and a nursing school (teaching only clinical training), and a visiting nursing stations.
"Look out into the wide world. And think by yourself." It's a line from one of my favorite movie. I think this is the origin of my curiosity. Although I don't have any work experience abroad, I became interested in international health through my encounters with foreign patients as a nurse and learning about people's lives and medical care overseas. I want to enjoy everything and do my best.
