Ibrahim B. Dukuly obtained his BSc degree from the University of Liberia in 2007 and is currently seeking master’s in public health degree in health systems policy and management at the KIT Royal Tropical Institute in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

He has worked in the health sector for over a decade (2008 to present) in many roles at the Ministry of Health. As Program Officer for Health Systems Strengthening (HSS) in the Global Fund Program Coordinating Unit, he coordinated the implementation of HSS activities funded by the Global Fund with implementing units and entities by providing planning and implementation support. He also provided support to County Health Teams in their annual planning for the delivery of health services and worked with the Global Fund Local Fund Agent (LFA) to conduct spot checks on monitoring and evaluation, supportive supervision, and the logistics management information system (LMIS). As Grant Manager with the External Aid Coordination Unit, he took the lead in restructuring the Health System Reconstruction Project (HSRP), a World Bank grant to Liberia, and rolled out performance-based contracting for the provision of health services in Liberia as member of the Performance-based Financing (PBF) Team of the Ministry of Health.

Prior to joining the Ministry of Health, he served as project coordinator for the Organization of Liberian Muslim Youth (OLMY). He coordinated the implementation of two projects financed by USAID and aimed at discouraging the participation of Liberia youth in armed conflicts in the subregion and mobilizing Muslim communities in 6 counties to participate in the 2008 National Population Census.

He was an integral part of a youth-driven and managed series of community engagements to quell the waves of youth violence in Monrovia and other urban settings in 2004—2005. He oversaw the mobilization of 800 youth to undertake a 10-day cleanup campaign prior to the inauguration in 2006 of Africa’s First Female President, Madam Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf.

Between 1999 and 2002 he taught Mathematics at the Muslim Congress High School, during which time he chaired the disciplinary and academic committees, and finally, the Department of Mathematics during his terminal year.

Ibrahim is dedicated to community service; he worked with the leadership of the Christopolis Community to distribute Ebola prevention materials and promote healthy activities during the Ebola Virus Disease crisis. He has been the Honorary Students’ Counselor for the Islamic Development Bank Scholarship Programme in Liberia since 2008, involved with transforming the beneficiaries into competent professionals while ensuring their commitment to community service.

He is a member of the International Association of Public Health Logisticians (IAPHL).
