Momah martins-pharmacist/public health
Having worked professionally in different ARV sites within Lagos (GHAIN & ALCO/ACONDA sponsored sites) and Gombe (ICAP sponsored) states respectively for almost three years, I have developed a sense of specialty in the HIV/AIDS sector.
Such skills garnered during this period includes; in-depth knowledge of current HIV care and treatment guidelines, paying attention to details, being caring, self motivated and with a passion for helping both PLWHA’s & PABAs alike and improving their quality of life. I also developed the ability to design, collate, study, interpret and implement statistical data as regards the program.
I am an organized, effective communicator with patients, colleagues and management and have the ability to remain calm even in stressful or unexpected circumstances.
Also a confident team player, thriving on challenge and with a positive, cheerful attitude to patient care, clinical practice and academic study.
During my NYSC period, served as the HIV/PET CD LEADER and learned how to coordinate people to achieve best results.
Garnered the experience in organizing trainings for personnel, outreach programs within our host communities , developed and executed several innovative ideas for the success of the program hence was bestowed with the award for the BEST CD COORDINATOR funakaye LGA, Gombe state.
I am adaptable, flexible and willing to learn as well as trustworthy, honest, reliable and looking forward to being part of a team that ensures best possible care and treatment for all patients. My ability to improvise and provide alternative solutions to urgent needs in record time is one of my greatest assets.
