Caroline holds a PhD in Health Promotion and Behavior from the University of Georgia (US) and a Master’s degree in Public Health from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill (US). Caroline is driven by her passion to support efforts to ensure that all young people live healthy and productive lives. Currently, she is working on several youth-focused projects including the Population Council-led Adolescent Girls Initiative Kenya (AGI-K), a 6-year program funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID). AGI-K intends to reach at least 6,000 girls aged 10 to 14 years in Wajir County and the Kibera informal settlement in Nairobi with interventions focused on education, violence prevention, education and wealth creation. Caroline also co-leads a project that seeks to improve the quality of post-abortion care provided to adolescents and young women aged 10 to 24 years by strengthening the capacity of post-abortion care service providers to offer quality and comprehensive reproductive health care to young women in Kenya.
