Mrs. Chrisitine Munduru

Mrs Christine Munduru is a public health specialist. Her initial public health work focused on areas of HIV/AIDS, Malaria, Tuberculosis and integrated management of childhood illnesses. After gaining experience with International Rescue Committee (IRC) in Ikafe refugee camp, Canadian Physicians for Aid and Relief (CPAR) in Lango sub-region and African Medical Research Foundation (AMREF) in Luwero and Kiboga, she moved to a regional level work on health and human rights in 2009 with Open Society Initiative for Eastern Africa (OSIEA). While at OSIEA, she initiated a rights-based advocacy program on maternal health in Uganda which resulted in the huge constitutional petition that took the government of Uganda to court over unnecessary deaths of pregnant mothers. From 2014, she became an independent consultant on public health but with particular focus and interest on maternal health and the Human Rights Based Approach (HRBA). She is now supporting OSIEA as a consultant to scale up the rights based maternal health program in Kenya, Tanzania and S.Sudan and strengthen the work in Uganda.
