I'm a medical doctor with extensive experience in clinical management of HIV in Ethiopia. In my PhD thesis which I obtained from the University of Bergen, Norway in 2007 I discussed strategies for overcoming implementation challenges of antiretroviral therapy in resource limited settings. I have over 30 peer reviewed journal publications, over 40 published abstract presentations, and I have contributed in several guidelines and policy documents. My current area of research focuses on improving care and treatment for adolescents living with HIV. I also holds an honorary assistant professor position in the department of preventive medicine at Addis Ababa University.
