Hope Mafaranga

I am a member of the Uganda Science Journalists Association and I'm based in Mbarara in south-western Uganda. I have a special interest in health writing and reporting, with thirteen years of experience in print and online media both locally and internationally.

I am member of the Communities Delegation Board of the Global Fund, an initiative to fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.

I am also the Uganda focal person for HACEY, a community-based organisation whose vision is to create a healthy and sustainable society for all. I have worked for Uganda’s leading daily the New Vision and I am sub editor and health editor at Orumuri News Paper, a sister paper to the New Vision.

I am a passionate health writer with a focus on HIV and maternal health, as well as being a human rights activist. I am a media trainer and mentor, as well as consultant.

Apart from health issues, I am also passionate about sports and I am a founder member and the vice chairperson of the Western Media Sports Club.
