Samwel Nyamweya


Dr. Benjamin Tsofa

Nyamweya undertook a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing ( Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology), after which he got an opportunity to work with the USAID under the Site Improvement through Monitoring Systems (SIMS) programme , through which he gained more insight into the state of health systems in Kenya. In addition, he has also worked with LVCT-Health undertaking community health research where he gained skills and knowledge on community health research. During this period he developed an interest in health systems which prompted him to enroll for a Masters of Public Health at Jaramogi Oginga Odinga University of Science and Technology, of which he is currently pursuing.

Presently, he is an IDeAL MSc fellow, working with Dr. Benjamin Tsofa and Dr. Jacinta Nzinga on Health Systems Research, focusing on the factors influencing career choices of graduate nurses trained in semi-urban settings. He hopes to further his career in Health Systems and help in scaling up the Health Systems in Kenya.
