Mihiret Yilma is a biomedical engineer who works in multiple healthcare delivery sectors. She had the opportunity to visit several hospitals in Ethiopia and realized that there is an acute shortage of affordable medical devices and quality healthcare delivery. Since then, she developed an interest to start her medical equipment design work to address such a significant problem in her community. She is also actively involved in providing training to different hospitals on the installation, maintenance, and proper management of medical devices. Mihiret has received both national and international awards for her problem-solving and innovative projects. Mihiret is also giving supervision for undergraduate students on their project works. Mihiret hopes to implement her designs within the medical device manufacturing industry. Upon completion of the Mandela Washington Fellowship, she plans to use the gained knowledge and experiences from this fantastic opportunity for future collaboration.
