On a hot, dusty day in early May, we had the chance to speak with George Momanyi under a mango tree in Yumbe District in northwest Uganda, not far from the border with South Sudan. George is a volunteer with Strengthening Technical Assistance for Routine Immunization Today (START), a new program being established by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The program is designed to build core capacity at the district level through a focus on mentoring and on-the-job training.
