The BID Initiative team works across three countries in the United States, Tanzania, and Zambia. This week, we learn more about John Fulli, Change Management Lead in Arusha, Tanzania.
What is your role on BID? I provide support in the adoption and overall behavior change and quality improvement work related to the quality and use of immunization data in Tanzania. I also evaluate and recommend the appropriate change management (CM) and quality improvement methodologies and tools for implementation in health facilities and across the health system.
If you could choose anyone, who would you pick as your mentor? Apollo Temu (BID Deputy Director in Tanzania).
What was the last experience that made you a stronger person? When I hosted a US Congressional delegation composed of the highest level delegates (US Senators, US Congress members, USAID representatives, WHO representative, Global Fund representative, United Nation Foundation representatives, Ministry of Health representative) who visited field project sites in Tanzania for the projects I was overseeing.
What do you like most about your job? Interacting with real project beneficiaries at the community levels.
What are your hobbies? My hobbies are reading, listening music, traveling, training, and influencing others on what I believe.
What is your proudest accomplishment? My proudest accomplishment is professional advancement from a health officer to a successful experienced health and development programs management professional.
“John’s past experience and negotiations skills, coupled with his charm as the team navigates various local government administrative layers, are valuable input to the team as he leads the CM initiatives to ensure BID interventions are successful. His support is appreciated.” – Apollo Temu, Deputy Directory, Tanzania
