She joined KNCV in September 2018 as the Project Manager for IMPAACT4TB, a project to scale up the uptake of a short regimen for TB preventive therapy. She has provided technical assistance to the government to effect policy change to include shorter regimens in the national guidelines, engaged with stakeholders including civil society organisations, and finalised a protocol for the implementation of the project.

Over the past 117 years, the organization has acquired indispensable knowledge and experience in the field of effective TB control, resulting in pre-elimination in the Netherlands and significant contributions to global evidence generation, policy development and TB program implementation worldwide.
