Clemence obtained her Masters in Nursing (Community Health) from the University of KwaZulu-Natal in 2014. Her professional background includes nursing management and administration and lecturing nursing students at an academic institution in Rwanda. Clemence aims to utilise her data to critically analyse the implementation and integration of maternal and new born health care programmes in district hospitals in Rwanda. She anticipates that her research will lead to programme interventions that reduce maternal and new born mortality in Rwandan hospitals.
