hello world!

Doreen Achieng Baraza Awino

Director, Health Systems Strengthening

As the Director of Health Systems Strengthening, Doreen leads Lwala’s work to advance community-led health in systems and policies at the national and county level. She is the face of Lwala amongst our strategic partners, including the Ministry of Health, and she is a fierce advocate whose passion is grounded in her work with communities. Prior to joining Lwala, Doreen worked at the Fred Hollows Foundation and Plan International on a variety of public health programs. Doreen holds Masters of Science in Health Systems Management, Bachelor of Science in Community Health, Diploma in Registered Community Health Nursing, Certificate in Monitoring and Evaluation from AMREF, and a Certificate in Professional Counseling. Doreen is inspired to work with Lwala because she can engage directly with the community members on health issues. “When I heard about Lwala, I knew I wouldn’t be sitting in an office and thinking of the people abstractly,” she says, “I knew I would be able to talk and engage with people and tap into the knowledge of the community.”




Agency, health, and wholeness of life.
