He holds the position of Director: International Health & Development at the National Department of Health, South Africa, where he is involved in designing, coordinating and implementing South Africa’s Global Health initiatives with other bilateral and international organizations. He is also involved in training and capacity building in global health to bring about African voices and perspectives in global health issues. He is an Associate at the Migration and Health Project Southern Africa (maHp). He serves at various national committees such as the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Intellectual Property; the Inter-Agency Clearing Forum (IACF) and Technical Task Team on Migration. He holds a PhD (Public Health) from the University of Pretoria. He is currently the President of the Public Health Association of South Africa (PHASA). His interest in PHASA is an Association that embrace the role of platform for its communities — working with all relevant partners so that it can drive initiatives including those that explicitly address “upstream” social determinants of health. All PHASA structures should engage with community stakeholders — from both the public and private sectors — to form vibrant, structured, cross-sector partnerships designed to develop and guide the new Public Health vision and to foster shared funding, services, governance, and collective action. PHASA should further embrace the 4th Industrial Revolution and infusing technology through all aspects of its activities, including committed to inclusion, diversity and gender parity.
