Rashida Namirembe

Before joining the Brown School for my PhD program, I worked with International Centre for Child Health and Development (ICHAD) as a study coordinator for the M-Suubi study; multi-level combined intervention to reduce the impact of HIV impact on HIV treatment outcomes among adolescents living with HIV in Uganda.

Prior to joining ICHAD, I worked as a social worker with Uganda Youth Development, (UYDEL) an NGO that conducts health awareness campaigns, advocation and providing psychosocial support to sexually exploited adolescents and children involved in drug abuse and child labour in the slums of Kampala district.
