Country Manager, currently working in Kenya

Dr. Joanne Ondera began her career working as a medical doctor in the largest referral hospital in central Kenya. She then worked for the German Development Cooperation(GIZ) as a healthcare financing advisor to the Ministry of Health, National Hospital Insurance Fund, and County Departments of Health. Dr. Ondera holds an undergraduate degree in Medicine and Surgery from the University of Nairobi, a post graduate degree in Healthcare Management from the University of Surrey and is currently pursuing postgraduate studies in Health Economics, Policy and Management from the London School of Economics. At ThinkWell she serves as country director for ThinkWell’s Kenya office and works primarily on health financing and strategic purchasing for primary health care.

I am keenly interested in working towards sustainable healthcare financing in low and middle-income countries and I am passionate about improving equitable access to quality healthcare services for citizens of these countries.
