Dr Felicity FItzgerald

Position: Trustee and Co-investigator

Dr Felicity FItzgerald is a specialist in children’s infectious diseases who does both clinical and research work. Her research work is based in Zimbabwe at Sally Mugabe Central Hospital in Harare, where she assisted in the first set up of the Neotree and is particularly keen to see how the use of Neotree can help in reducing the spread of infection between babies on the neonatal unit. She’s previously worked in South Africa and Sierra Leone on diseases including HIV and Ebola virus disease. For her, the best thing about Neotree is the enthusiasm of the nurses and doctors that are using it in Zimbabwean and Malawian hospitals – it is a joy to work on a project that has been so whole-heartedly embraced by the hospital staff.
