A PHD student/researcher in the field of digital health and digital health literacy at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, in Stockholm, Sweden. My PHD thesis is entitled; “Enabling and sustaining digital health in LMICs”, where several concepts that explain enablement as well as sustaining of digital health in low- and middle-income countries are suggested. Concepts of “relevance” and “user engagement” and “change management” are explored. I have also been involved in eLearning and eHealth projects in Rwanda and in Africa since 2001. Recently (2020-2022), I have been one of the lead instructors of digital health literacy at KTH for the “Online Education for Leaders in Nutrition and Sustainability” a program that was funded by the Swedish Institute to train leaders from Rwanda, Kenya and Ethiopia. During 2005-2008, I was country director for Voxiva Inc, an American company which was contracted by CDC and the Government of Rwanda to implement a state-of-art health information system called TRACNET, that was designed to collect, store, retrieve, display and disseminate critical program information, as well as to manage drug distribution and patient information related to the care and treatment of HIV/AIDS. During 2001 to 2004, I worked for the African Virtual University, where I was based at the Kigali Institute of Science and Technology (KIST), Rwanda. At KIST, I was the technical coordinator for distance learning responsible for providing strategic planning for the distance learning centre as regards development, planning and implementation of technical systems and use of computer resources at the Learning Center including access, use and security policies.
