Dr Job Mwanza
Dr Job Mwanza is a public health specialist who did his postgraduate training at Cardiff University as a Chevening Scholar in 2015/16.
Before receiving the prestigious Chevening scholarship, he spent 4 years working as a medical officer in charge (Superintendent) at Chongwe district hospital in rural Zambia.
Since 2012, he has been instrumental in the collaboration between Mothers of Africa and the Ministry of Health in particular doing charity work through provision of quality health services at Chongwe district hospital that serves the rural under-served community.
He has since returned to his position as District Health Director and overall supervisor of a team of close to 200 staff that work at the facility focusing on primary health care. His focus among others is to promote health through prioritising activities that promote disease prevention within the minimal resource the institution accesses through both government and partner grants. He recently was the main collaborator in-country and supporter of Mothers of Africa during the preparations and eventual construction of the quality infrastructure at Shiyala Primary School that provides quality education to close to 400 children in the rural community closer to their families. Through this collaboration, quality education will eventually translate into a healthy community, something that is close to the heart of Dr Job Mwanza.
