Atai Scholarship: Donations Sought


Dr Atai Omorutu was an outstanding Ugandan family doctor. She pioneered the establishment of family medicine program at Makerere University, Uganda and was head of the family medicine department at Makerere University from 2004 to 2011. Atai was an executive member of the WONCA Working Party on Women and Family Medicine (WWPWFM) and was the recipient of WONCA 2016 Global Five Star Doctor Award in recognition of her extraordinary service as a family medicine leader over many years, her service to the people of Uganda, and her extraordinary leadership tackling the Ebola crisis in West Africa. 

Sadly she died in 2016, but WWPWFM has established a bursary scheme in her memory, to support African woman doctors to attend regional conferences. You can read more of the bursary scheme – and how to donate – at https://www.wonca.net/member/awards/Ataischolarship.aspx
