DR GREGORY OCHIENG GANDA
Dr. Gregory Ochieng Ganda is a renowned Gynecologist oncologist at Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital (JOOTRH). He currently runs the oncology clinic at the facility and also does his private practice at various private facilities in Kisumu including but not limited to the Bloom surgical center, Aga Khan Hospital, Kisumu Specialist Hospital. He runs the gynecology oncology clinic at JOOTRH on Tuesdays and splits the rest of his time in the wards and in the theatre.
His work as a medical officer in remote areas in Voi, where women had bad obstetric outcomes led him to start the hot tea initiative (where women who had delivered were given hot tea and baby shawls as a motivation for hospital delivery), renovation and opening of the theater which led to his special recognition and Masters sponsorship. He went into Oncology after having met many patients with poor survival rates after lack of access to specialty care and wanted to make a difference.
His vision for the Kisumu County Cancer Alliance is to have a platform where all like-minded partners work together for the common good of the people of Kisumu to improve cancer outcomes by having an infrastructure for screening, early detection, and treatment to improve survival for cancer patients.
His hobbies involve being outdoors, traveling, hiking, and rock climbing.
Dr. Ganda has a Master of Medicine in Gynecology oncology from Makerere University and a fellowship in gynecology oncology from Moi University in collaboration with the University of Toronto. He previously worked at the Coast General hospital, Ngao district hospital, and Migori county hospital.
