Wycliffe is the Manager for Lwala’s Clinical Excellence program, where he is responsible for elevating Lwala Community Hospital as a Center of Excellence that models, teaches, and advances dignified, patient-centered primary health care. He also provides support to public health facilities in Rongo Subcounty, and he advances clinical training in obstetric hemorrhage management, cervical cancer, and Helping Babies Breath across Migori County. Wycliffe previously worked with AIDS Relief at Kendu Adventist Hospital and Kenya AIDS Response Program (KARP) as the lead clinician. He has a diploma in Clinical Medicine & Surgery and a Bachelor’s in Sociology and International Relations. He is registered with the Clinical Officers’ Council of Kenya and is a trainer of trainers in TB-HIV co-infection. Wycliffe also received training in Counseling and Programming for Infant and Young Child Feeding from Cornell University, in collaboration with UNICEF. Wycliffe recalls, “A patient story that stands out for me is a man who came to us in 2015. We referred him to a bigger hospital because of the severity of his illness. Two weeks later he came back to Lwala because he felt he was not well taken care of at the larger facility. After some discussion and treatment from Lwala, his condition improved. It demonstrated that bigger facilities with more resources don’t always mean better care and it proved what Lwala could do for its patients.”



Agency, health, and wholeness of life.
