Joyleen
Kafuka

Joyleen is a pharmacist with 10 years of experience in a private hospital setting. Her passion since then has been to impart health information to her community. She is currently the head of the pharmacy at Avenues Clinic. Joyleen holds a bachelor’s degree in pharmacy from Rhodes University in South Africa and has received hospital management and leadership training.

Some of her accomplishments include successfully spearheading the installation of a real-time billing system to help reduce late payments and depressed cash flows, prepacking medication and standardizing packaging to increase efficiency, and advocating for critical unregistered hospital drugs to be brought in by suppliers on a bulk special permit. She has also been nominated as an outstanding women in health and medicine business at the Intombie Young Women in Business Awards.

In the next 5 years, she would like to have established a lifestyle health centre which would benefit both high and low-income communities, and see the government understand the benefit of such institutions in Zimbabwe, in order to reduce the number of non-communicable diseases in Zimbabwe.
