" The need for a safe world and safe workspace where typical medical procedures can be carried out drive my awareness creation efforts. Studying hard in my undergraduate to become a doctor would be futile if we were to go back to the pre-antibiotic era where minor infections and surgical procedures were claiming lives. It will be in futility if by practicing I am endangering my life. An action has to be taken. For this reason, I took it upon myself to bridge the knowledge gaps that exists among my fellow students and the community at large in a bid to inform behavior change. Being part of the Millennium Fellowship gives me an exclusive opportunity to interact with fellow young leaders across the globe hence getting a chance to share ideas and learn from them as they make the world a better place in their small ways.

Millennium Fellowship Project: Students Anti-Superbugs

My project aims to increase awareness on antimicrobial resistance. It targets mainly students from the College of Health Sciences and the Veterinary Medicine School at the University of Nairobi. I aim to do this through online webinars and through community sensitization programs.
