Ousmane Faye

Ousmane Faye, MSH’s country director for the Medicines, Technologies, and Pharmaceutical Services (MTaPS) Program in Senegal, has more than 20 years of experience as a public health strategy and policy expert specializing in reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health. Before taking on this role, he served as the project director of the Integrated Health Project Plus (IHPplus) in the Democratic Republic of Congo, a three-year “bridge” project aimed at preventing a gap in services in USAID-supported health zones when the USAID-funded Integrated Health Project (IHP) ended. IHPplus partnered with the DRC Ministry of Health to strengthen the country’s health system at every level, focusing on maternal, newborn, and child health; family planning; nutrition; malaria; tuberculosis; HIV and AIDS; and water, sanitation, and hygiene. Prior to joining MSH, Faye worked for and managed various health programs funded by USAID and the United National Population Fund in Senegal and Rwanda.
