I am a 29 year old woman working as a reporter. I have a four year old daughter and I live with her father. I enjoy reading and writting, although I dont get many opportunities to write what is in my heart. I write passionately on health especially HIV/AIDS and maternal health. I have written about women giving birth on the way to the hospital, women scarred for life physically and emotionally because they could not reach the hospital on time.
I have made it my mission to inform as many people about the challenges women in my country face when accessing simple health care because they are too poor to live in town where there are hospitals.
