Advancing Health and Social Justice in Malawi: A conversation with Samson Njolomole (Awareness Raising Event)

Please join PIH Engage DC for a conversation with Samson Njolomole, External Relations Manager for Partners in Health Malawi.

 

Samson Njolomole began working as a translator at Partners In Health / Abwenzi Pa Za Umoyo in his home district of Neno, Malawi. At the time, antiretroviral therapy (ART) was available to only 10 patients in the district. Identified for his compassion, defense of human rights, and strengths as a community organizer, Sam quickly rose to become HIV Program Coordinator, where he was instrumental in expanded capacity for ART to the two hospitals and eleven health centers that currently serve over 4,900 HIV patients throughout the district. Later, as Community Programs Manager, Sam initiated innovative community-based health education, outreach, and testing events. Sams charisma and passion for justice for the poor draw attendance that swells into the thousands at community events. In his current role as External Relations Manager, Sam serves as the primary liaison between Abwenzi Pa Za Umoyo and local, domestic, and international partners and communities.   RSVP here: http://pihengagedc.eventbrite.com
