Regional Director, Africa, Medic Mobile


Maeghan Orton, Africa Regional Director. Maeghan has a mind for business, a passion for people and a mission to bring innovative technologies to bear on grass-roots challenges. As a business student at the University of Waterloo, she lived in Uganda and worked with HIV-positive women to create a micro-credit & health program. With these women, she first experienced the strength in unity of a community working together for change. She later received an MSc in International Health from Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh, and became enthralled with appropriate technology in global health. She has seven years of experience in the financial & international development sectors, specializing in maternal and child health. Maeghan always travels with rock climbing shoes and a small coffee maker, evidence of her two major addictions. She has lived in twelve countries in North America, Africa, the Caribbean and Europe and now manages Medic's East Africa programs from a base in Nairobi.
