About me

  • I am a medical doctor with a Master in Public Health and a PhD and around 15 years’
    experience in humanitarian work in sub-Saharan Africa as a clinician,
    technical assistant and researcher. My main focus has been on how health
    systems can work for the most disadvantaged in low-income settings,
    particularly women and children.
    I am now studying how poorer women use childbirth services in rural
    sub-Saharan Africa, and how health services can best contribute to serving
    all women. In the past I participated and coordinated in research projects on
    quality and coverage of maternal/newborn care in Tanzania, Uganda, as part of
    development interventions. I have a specific interest in primary health care.
    Additional research experience in high income country contexts.
    Main areas of experience are in maternal/new-born, pediatric, HIV, TB and
    refugee health.
