  • About Me

Uche is a Ph.D. candidate in the department of health information sciences (HIS). His Ph.D. research will focus on achieving three key objectives. First, enhance an already established information system's model to enable it assess low and middle income country’s (LMIC) health information system’s (HIS) readiness against future Ebola outbreaks. Second, validate the enhanced model and third, based on the enhanced information system’s model as the theoretical underpinning, describe the current state of Liberia’s HIS readiness against a future Ebola outbreak. Uche's desire to make this contribution to knowledge was driven by the need to prevent a repeat of the 2013-2016 Ebola pandemic in West Africa by ensuring that theoretical models are available to enable researchers working in LMIC to assess their HIS based on their country’s contextual reality.
