Daniel Mutonga is the the facilitator of the Medical Students’ Association Of Kenya (MSAKE) Open Access Advocacy Campaign. Daniel submitted a winning entry in the INASP Open Access competition.   I first heard of the Open Access Movement in 2011 following the International Federation of Medical Students’ Association (IFMSA) August Meeting in Copenhagen, Denmark. Nick Shockey, the Director to Rights to Research Coalition, made a presentation encouraging IFMSA members to approve the IFMSA policy on Open Access. I was then the President of the Medical Students’ Association of Kenya (MSAKE). Over lunch and between sessions, I got to learn more about Nick and the work he did. We exchanged contacts and we have continued to keep in touch since.
