007: Beginning my management journey: Avenue Hospital - Dr. Githinji Gitahi on #DDwithMaqC

At the start of his career, Dr. Githinji doubled up as a clinician at #MarieStopes by day and a locum supporting to process insurance claims at #Agakhan Hospital by night just to make ends meet. He then got a job as an outpatient manager at #AvenueHospital, and due to his stellar work, would soon be appointed as the Medical Quality Manager, overseeing clinical management. His role included reviewing the demand for health services from companies signed up for the medical cover, a program that was the precursor to what is now one of the most innovative Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) model. He also later managed the ABC package (for pregnancy) and was conducting extremely popular lamas' classes on Saturdays, which led to Avenue Hospital starting an ante-natal clinic.

At #DDwithMaqC™, leaders and practitioners in the development, global health, impact investing, human rights, social justice fields share their stories, journeys, inspirations, and aspirations in life and careers. The unscripted auto-biographical approach allows for deep reflections on lessons and issues. One conversation at a time, one story at a time, we amplify unsung voices experiences, share solutions, and causes, provide examples and insights that explain and humanize development in a way that helps “us” and “others” to “get it” or “plug in”, as relevant.
