About Angela Muriuki

Angela joined FIND in February 2023 as the Director, Women’s Health, based in Nairobi, Kenya. She has 16+ years’ experience working with women and girls in programme, policy, research, system strengthening and clinical roles in East, West and Central Africa and in South Asia. She is a passionate advocate for person- and people-centred approaches to addressing the needs of women and girls based on their age and life stage.

Some of her previous work includes translation of key principles from the science of the developing adolescent’s brain into design and delivery of programmes for very young adolescents in Tanzania, testing of a risk-based approach to provision of targeted postnatal care in Bangladesh, testing of resupply approaches for conflicted-affected chronic care patients (HIV, NCD) during displacement and forced movement in DRC, adapting health systems to meet the needs of nomadic and semi-nomadic pastoralists in Kenya and a person-centred, holistic approach to care of pregnant and parenting adolescents in Sierra Leone.

Angela obtained her medical degree at the University of Nairobi and her master’s degree from The Royal Tropical Institute in Amsterdam and Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh, as part of the Erasmus Mundus Masters Programme.
