I am a lawyer by profession with a Bachelor's degree from Makerere University in Kampala Uganda. My master's degree was attained from the Uganda Martyr's University in Nkozi, Masaka with a master of Arts in Human Rights. The legal background and human rights that I posses has supported my carrier in Human Rights immensely that I have since turned into a health and human rights activist in Uganda and Africa at large. I do activism on health rights global issues like access to essential medicines, vaccine acceptability and the fight against vaccine hording. In my carrier of health rights activism, I have published on a wide range of health rights issues and human rights purposely to challenge the barriers to access to care. There are current themes that I so engrossed in and these include the issue of health worker immigration as a barrier to access to care, the fight against cooperate takeover through commercialization of the health sector in privatizations and the issue of vaccine access to all equitably. I am a promoter and currently head Human Rights Research Documentation Center (HURIC), I also coordinate the People's Health Movement in Uganda. The HURIC center under my stewardship has been part of the various campaigns in vaccine acceptance, health workers for all in Africa and the issue of engaging various stakeholders in the issue health worker immigration from poor countries to the high end economies. We have launched various campaigns on the issue of Universal Health Coverage by creating community awareness and also making suggestions to alternatives to attaining coverage for all by the end of year 2030. On behalf of the People's Health Movement which is a global network, I have managed to coordinated it through various campaigns and engagements that have managed to get us to advocate for the right to health. The movement has supported various strategic ligation issues to include access to maternal services in regional referral hospitals. These Public litigation campaigns have managed to deliver to us support and coalitions on many emergency issues on the right to health like, the maternal reproductive health services, maternal new born and adolescent health. I remain committed to my work and support and train other young activists. This we have done through the people's health university coordinated by the movement.
