Op-ed gets published!

3 03 2010

Just when you thought this blog was dead and gone, I have a follow up that is too good not to share.  After months of pitching and not knowing, I was disappointed to leave Uganda not knowing if the op-ed I wrote would ever get an audience outside of my co-workers.  Yesterday, my executive director (whose name you will see as the byline) wrote to say it was indeed published in the Independent, a weekly magazine in Uganda!

The op-ed is essentially a call to action, reprimanding the government for letting corruption get in the way of taking care of its citizens.  The case in point is the fact that there are hundreds of millions of dollars available to Uganda for treatment of HIV/AIDS, Malaria and Tuburculosis but the blatant corruption is harming Uganda’s ability to collect the money.

If interested, click here to read the op-ed. I seem to remember it being more interesting than it actually reads now but nonetheless I’m still quite happy to have a published piece in Uganda!
