Dr. Maira Bholla, Ph.D.

Dr. Bholla is a Molecular Epidemiologist with 20 years of health-sector experience in Eastern Africa. She managed the Medical Laboratory at the Aga Khan University Hospital, Nairobi for 11 years. During this time, her technical focus was on HIV diagnostics and in the later years on tuberculosis in children. She is therefore specifically qualified to do the much needed COVID-19 molecular test.

She currently consults in the Health Sector in East Africa and has relevant networks in the public and private sectors. Part of her portfolio in the Health industry includes market research and data analysis for pharmaceutical and health insurance companies, bringing together expert panels on cancer, advice on medical and paramedical projects, supply chain logistics and supervision of postgraduate students.
