Edward is the current Executive Secretary for the Pan African Christian AIDS Network – PACANet, a position he has held since the inception of the organisation in 2002. Whereas he is a theologian by background, he has had a vast experience in public health and development work over the past 20 years. He has served in various capacities on the continent, participating in evolving the Christian response to HIV and AIDS. Born & trained in Uganda, his 1st engagement after fulltime pastoral ministry was in communities offering HIV and AIDS counseling, awareness and education. With his experience, he engaged in program development and project design. Edward has worked as a National Director in Botswana, founding and leading the Botswana Christian AIDS Intervention Program – BOCAIP. It is this experience in BOCAIP that led to the insights and desire to lead a continental initiative that coordinates and further develops the Christian response of HIV and AIDS on the African continent. He has therefore served as a founding Executive Secretary to PACANet since 2002 to date. Edward is a family man married to Christine with 4 daughters.
