Seeing the World as a Network – Yazoume Ye

by on August 2, 2013

Yazoume Ye (last name pronounced Yay), is MEASURE Evaluation’s technical leader for malaria. The project’s principal malaria activity is an ambitious evaluation of the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) in 15 countries. Those evaluations are a collaborative effort with several agencies, including the CDC. He also conducts malaria M&E training, in both English and French.

Yazoume joined MEASURE Evaluation in 2009 as one of the staff of ICF (then called Macro). On the way there, he studied geography and demography at the University of Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso; obtained his MS and PhD degrees in Public Health from the University of Heidelberg, Germany; and worked for the African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC) in Nairobi, for the Centre de Santé de Nouna (CRSN) Ministry of Health Burkina Faso, and for WHO as a technical coordinator for impact evaluations.

Although he studied in Burkina Faso, Yazoume was born in Cote d’Ivoire, where he was the fourth of eight children. His three year old daughter, Dohan, is Yazoume’s and his wife’s first child. He and wife, Catherine, met in Germany while in the same masters and PhD programs. Catherine is Ugandan, so that is where they were married. When he is not working, Yazoume likes to do carpentry, home improvement, or to fish. I’m betting his love of fishing began as a young boy with his siblings in Cote d’Ivoire.
