AKU’s faculty, students and graduates go where the need is greatest. Our alumna Hilda Nekesa Nabiswa, MMed ’17, is the first internal medicine physician in Turkana County in Kenya. She is currently serving at the Lodwar County Referral Hospital in Lodwar, a town located in the west of Lake Turkana.
Appointed in February this year, her first major initiative is to make the Hospital’s dialysis centre functional, which will be the only dialysis centre in the county. “I aspire to serve those who cannot afford to travel to large cities for quality healthcare. This is what makes me happy as a physician,” says Hilda.
