With over 16 years’ experience of working in Africa, she has been with SCI since 2005 facilitating the delivery of millions of treatments. Prior to her time with SCI, Fiona lived and worked in Uganda for four years managing a Community Resource Programme for Restless Development, which focused on bottom-up sustainable health and agricultural activities in rural populations.
