Fortunate Mutesi

Africa CDC

As a Legal Officer at Africa CDC, I ensure adherence to the rules and regulations of the African Union while providing valuable counsel. With a Master’s degree in Public Health from Peking University, a Master’s degree in Law from Loyola University, Chicago, and a Post Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice from Law Development Centre, Uganda, I possess expertise in International Humanitarian Law, Public International Law, and International Public Health Law. My leadership, analytics, negotiation, and drafting skills have been valuable assets during my time at Africa CDC.

Outside of work, I am a passionate advocate for gender equality and sexual reproductive health rights, with experience gained from working with Restless Development International. I also enjoy traveling, reading, and networking and am an active member of professional bodies such as the Public Health Emergency Center, East Africa Law Society, Uganda Law Society, and Foundation for Human Rights Initiative.
