Emmanuel Kiiza Mwesiga


Emmanuel is a psychiatrist and lecturer at Makerere University in Uganda. His clinical interests revolve around ensuring patients with severe mental illnesses come into care early and receive treatments that are effective for their individual cultural, racial, and personal needs.

To be among people, you need to speak their language. Three years ago, if you had given me a genetics paper to read, I would have run for the hills. But now I am very confident. I now speak the language.
