I am an ophthalmologist , trained In the University of Nairobi, Kenya. Following my training I also obtained a Masters qualifications at the University College London in Community Eye Health ( now known as Public Health for Eye care) in 1999. Since then, I have been working with the International Centre for Eye health (ICEH) for the last 12 years with the main role of developing and managing the Masters in Public health for Eye care at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. The main focus of this training is to enable an ophthalmic clinicians to consider the health needs of populations and obtain skills in research , planning and advocacy within their health systems framework. Our training to date has been mainly for eye health personnel from low and middle income countries. I have stepped down as Course Director for the PHEC face to face training programme in January 2013 with a key focus to develop distance and blended learning options in eye health and in disability. We have also expanded our short course training programmes in Tropical Ophthalmology, Eye health systems, Global disability and Health and public health planning for hearing impairment.
