We are excited to announce the appointment of Amanyire William as ACCHO’s new Director. Amanyire will step into leading ACCHO on May 30, 2022, and will bring more than 15 years of general clinical practice and public health experience. Amanyire comes to ACCHO from the Canadian Red Cross where he was a Public Health Specialist. He was also the Site Manager, GTA & Peel Region Vaccination Clinics, and the COVID-19 Swabbing Supervisor at the Canadian Red Cross.

A physician by training, Amanyire also has a Master’s degree in Public Health. In Uganda, he was instrumental in eliminating polio, reducing mother-to-child transmission of HIV, and combating Ebola hemorrhagic fever while serving as a Senior Health Promotion Officer at the Ministry of Health. He has managed and implemented many HIV/AIDS projects along with projects addressing communicable diseases such as malaria, tuberculosis, and hepatitis B.

Amanyire is a collaborator, facilitator, and leader. His flexible style and engaging approach combined with his many skills have delivered impactful results. He is excited to become a member of the ACCHO team and to be engaged in the HIV sector in Ontario. On May 30th, please join us in welcoming Amanyire.

Finally, we would like to extend a warm thank you to ACCHO’s Program Manager, Joy Nortei, and Black CAP’s Executive Director, Gareth Henry, for ensuring that ACCHO ran smoothly over the past few months.
