I am a clinician researcher with special interest in improving standards of health care and promoting maternal and sexual reproductive health in developing countries including Tanzania. As a clinician, I am working as a senior obstetrician gynaecologist at Muhimbili National referral Hospital that is also a teaching hospital for medical universities, of which I am a clinical senior lecturer.

As a researcher, I am interested in interventional research including clinical audit-feedback and designing and implementing complex interventions that continuously assess and upgrade health care services, and promote timely access and appropriate use of locally available health resources for the benefit of client/patient/community. My special interests in facility based health care research is promoting use of routinely collected data and E-health solutions to enhance the health system response to the care providers, patients/clients and health systems needs. My interest in community/global health care is to evaluate the role of nature based adaptable enviromental solution in health care, in order to determine and capture co-benefits of enviromental protection, adaptation measures against global warming and health care of vulnerable groups such as women and children in developing countries.
