Mbuyi Mutala

After completing his M.Ed. at CIE in 1986 Mutala went back to Zaire and worked as IEC/Training Coordinator for two major USAID-funded public health projects working on Nutrition Improvement and Basic Rural Health. He advocated for the use of non-formal and adult education methods and techniques in community health education.


In 1993, due to the volatile political situation in Kinshasa/Zaire and the subsequent closing down of all USAID projects, Mutala left Zaire and went to South Africa. In South Africa he worked with the Gauteng Department of Education in piloting an education and linguistic project funded by the French Embassy for secondary schools in SOWETO.


In 1999 Mutala returned to Amherst/MA and enrolled in a Master’s program in the UMass Department of Community Health Studies/School of Public Health. He received his M.PH. in 2001.


In 2007 Mutala began working as a public health officer for World Relief in West Darfur, Sudan. In 2009 he became the Chief of Party for a capacity building project to support two major integrated health projects on family planning, malaria, HIV, Watsan, TB, MCH and GBV in the Democratic Republic of Congo.


Since then he has worked as a consultant with the Qed Group in Washington, D.C. and as a contractor with the Yorktown System Group. 


Mutala currently lives in Woodbridge, Virginia. [10-23]
