At the ELBC, Roba demonstrated his exceptional English language skills. He then proceeded to join the Department of Medical Studies at Jimma University and graduated as a Health Officer (HO). Currently, he is serving as the Head of Metahara Health Office, his hometown, playing a leading role in all health-related efforts in the region. Roba takes a leading role in the campaign to eliminate malaria with the motto “Malaria elimination starts with me”, Kobo village of Fantalle. The campaign was part of the global endeavor to eliminate malaria (zero case by 2030) which Ethiopia has joined along many other countries of the world.
