Biography

Ifakara Health Institute (IHI) is a leading research organization in Africa, with strong track records in developing, testing and validating innovations for health. We are driven by core strategic mandate for research, training and services. The institute’s work spans across a wide spectrum of sciences including biomedical and ecological sciences, intervention studies, health-systems research, monitoring and evaluation and policy translation. IHI has a history of more than 50 years. It is an independent non-profit organisation registered in Tanzania. As the research officer and environmental engineer with ten years working in improving the living environment for my brothers and sisters living in the urban and rural areas of Tanzania. By joining this network I believe that I will be subjected to a broader area by which I will be able to get more knowledge of what is happening in the other side of the world which will increase the little knowledge that I have in fighting the health and environment threatens through sharing and receiving global knowledge.
