Season 2, Episode 5

Community health workers are the backbone of many health systems around the world. But, their contributions to public health are rarely recognised, and many go unpaid. Diana Nambatya Nsubuga, from the non-profit Living Goods, is working with governments across Sub-Saharan Africa to build these community heroes into their public health systems.

Not only is Nsubuga a high-level public health advocate and maternal health specialist, she’s also an award-winning urban farmer who teaches the tricks of the trade at her Integrated Health Kwagala Farm. Nsubuga tells Africa Science Focus reporter Halima Athumani why farming, nutrition, family and public health go hand in hand.
