Collins is chief news editor of Radio West in Mbarara, Uganda.
She began her reporting career as a parliamentary correspondent with Radio Uganda, and now specialises in environment and health journalism, with an emphasis on TB and HIV/AIDS.
In 2006 she received a US Embassy/Eastern Africa Media Institute radio reporting award for a feature on factory pollution. She is currently undertaking a Panos/StopTB fellowship, and is a member of the Uganda Media Women’s Association.
"I would like to see a corruption-free Uganda, in which resources allocated to the health sector are used for that purpose. I would also like to see everyone living with HIV/AIDS - including children – able to access treatment, together with improved nutrition."
