Since 2011, Professor Martin Kollmann has been Senior Advisor for Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) coordinating CBM’s global activities in the fight against these largely hidden diseases of poverty and inequity.

Professor Kollmann, a seconded CBM co-worker since 2001, studied Human Medicine sponsored by the Studienstiftung des Deutschen Volkes in Germany and completed his Doctorate in Göttingen. He worked for three years with the German Volunteer Service (DED) in rural hospitals in Ethiopia before completing his training in Ophthalmology at Munich University.

A consultant ophthalmologist and Associate Professor at the University Nairobi (UoN), Professor Kollmann trained postgraduates (M. Med. Ophthalmology), undergraduates, and mid-level eye care professionals. As CBM medical advisor and regional sponsorship coordinator, and as founding member of the Eastern Africa College of Ophthalmologists (EACO), he developed an innovative sponsorship programme. The programme builds local capacity and supports young Africans in their training at recognised institutions in the region.

Professor Kollmann is closely involved in research, training and high quality services at the University of Nairobi Institute of Tropical and Infectious Diseases (UNITID).

He is the holder of a Degree in Tropical Medicine and Medical Parasitology and an MBA in Health Care Management. He is also the Immediate Past Chair of the International Coalition for Trachoma Control (ICTC) and is a member of the Executive Group of the NTD NGDO Network (NNN) and the Board of the German Network against NTDs (DNTDs).
