I have worked with Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs for almost ten years, supporting a number of international projects in social and behavior change. I am currently living in Pakistan as Deputy Chief of Party for a USAID-funded maternal and child health program. With a focus on behavior change communication, adult learning methodologies and capacity building, I have partnered with local organizations to plan and implement community-based health and development interventions, curriculum development, IEC materials, distance learning, entertainment education, and mass media campaigns. I have a background in graphic arts, NGO management, international education, and behavior change communication.
Wazazi Nipendeni (Love me, Parents) is a national safe motherhood social and behavior change communication (SBCC) campaign. Phase I of the campaign launched in 2012 to encourage Tanzanian women and their partners to take steps for a healthy pregnancy and safe delivery. It was designed and managed in coordination with the Tanzania Capacity and Communication Project (TCCP).
