Country Director, Zambia
Fikansa is a senior public health professional with extensive experience in leading SRHR, HIV and AIDS programmes in Zambia, Malawi and Namibia. Before taking up his position as Country Director in July 2021, Fikansa worked with MSI in Zambia for over six years in different leadership roles.
Prior to his roles with MSI, Fikansa worked in different programming and leadership roles with public health and development organisations, including the Regional Psycho-Social Support Initiative, Academic Education for Development, Catholic Church in Zambia, and Planned Parenthood Association of Zambia. Fikansa has designed and implemented large and integrated projects funded by the EU, FCDO, USAID, UN agencies and various foundations.
Fikansa is driven by the impact SRHR services have on the lives of women and girls, and how access to reproductive healthcare can lead to sustainably improved quality of life for women and girls in Zambia and beyond. He is motivated by the prospect of a country where everyone can reach their full potential and contribute to national development, without fear or risk of unintended pregnancy.Back to team
