In this regard his track-record is unrivalled and his contribution has set a standard for the industry as a whole.
His expertise in health product manufacturing, procurement and supply management was developed through his experience in managing international organizations like IDA and Iplus, being a team member in organisations like JSI and providing consultancy services to well-known organizations and those with less visibility, and years of experience in training peers.
