Graduates Benita Gwaneza and Joella Ingabire both studied Healthcare Management with concentrations in Global Perspectives while at Kepler, and they now work at Health Builders, a local NGO dedicated to strengthening health systems and building facilities where access is limited. Their work has triggered a lot of reflection on the significance of healthcare management within the current health climate. They’ve experienced first hand the gaps in healthcare exposed by the COVID-19 pandemic and the importance of preventative care. Joella and Benita both see education as a pathway to strong health systems and strongly believe that education opportunities in healthcare management can lead to positive systemic changes in the industry.
“As someone in the industry, I’m leading by example and showing people how to act accordingly. We have a long way to go, and we each need to follow the guidelines set by the government. Wear a mask, wash your hands, and work from home if possible. It’s about protecting our family and friends.” -Benita
