Simone Van Willingh
Public-private Partnership Coordinator

Simone is responsible for the full management and coordination of business development at TB HIV Care.

Simone holds a degree in Public Relations Management and is currently studying toward a post-graduate diploma in Public Health. She has more than nine years of combined experience in the public health sector with expertise in communications, programme management, and business development.

Simone started at TB HIV Care as a communications coordinator and managed the Kick TB programme within correctional services. Due to the success of this programme, Simone was shifted to manage a national fee-for-service digital chest X-ray TB programme aimed at reducing TB in correctional services. In managing this complex programme, delivered via mobile chest X-ray trucks in correctional facility environments, she struck a balance between ensuring that the programme had significant impact and ensuring that it reached programmatic targets within a reduced time period.

At the close of this programme, Simone took up the position of public-private partnership coordinator, where she played a significant role in establishing the organisation's for-profit entity Strategic Health Solutions where she holds directorship.
