Ebahi Ikharo

Ebahi Ikharo is a doctoral student at the UNC School of Nursing and a Hillman Scholar in Nursing Innovation. During her fellowship at IntraHealth, Ikharo worked with Pamela McQuide. She traveled to Namibia to collect data from hospitals in and around Windhoek for a baseline assessment of the quality of obstetric and maternity services nurses there are providing. As part of the assessment, Ikharo created a new tool to help health officials in Namibia quickly assess whether their facilities are up to standards for maternity care.
