Dr James K. Tibenderana is a malaria and public health expert, with over 20 years of experience in the fields of epidemiology, infectious and tropical diseases and health system strengthening. Ugandan-born, he trained as a medical doctor at Makerere University, Kampala and as an epidemiologist at Institute of Public Health, University of Cambridge and London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. 

James was appointed Chief Executive of Malaria Consortium, a global health charity, in 2022, having joined the organisation as Development Director in 2005 and subsequently becoming its Africa Technical Director and then Global Technical Director.

In his 20+ years in this sector, he has helped to build the evidence-base for the switch from presumptive treatment to parasite-based diagnosis for malaria before treatment, supported the Uganda Ministry of Health with the change of anti-malarial treatment policy to artemisinin-based combination therapy (ACT) along with engaging the private sector to provide affordable and accessible ACTs, and spearheaded the establishment of a national research centre for malaria in Uganda.
