Jules Nahimana is a health program manager with almost two decades of experience working in the public health sector. He has worked extensively on malaria vector control programs, especially those implementing indoor residual spraying (IRS), in countries including Burkina Faso, Malawi, Mozambique, and Rwanda. In these roles, he has worked with many high-level organizations including the Ministries of Health (MOH) and the U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI).

Mr. Nahimana currently serves as the Chief of Party (COP) for the U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative Evolving Vector Control to Fight Malaria Project (PMI Evolve) in Rwanda. In this role, he oversees a team of 14 people and is responsible for providing overall strategic direction, operations management, and technical leadership, for all project activities. He also serves as the primary liaison between the project, the USAID Mission, Rwanda’s Ministry of Health, and the Malaria and Other Parasitic Diseases Division (MOPDD). In 2023, Nahimana led the PMI Evolve IRS campaign in Rwanda, which protected approximately 1.3 million people against malaria.

Prior to his current role, Mr. Nahimana served as the Senior Project Manager on the Abt-led PMI VectorLink Project in Malawi from April 2018-March 2023, where he managed the overall planning and implementation of the project’s spray operations.
