I am the Technical Lead for Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health and Nutrition with DAI Global Health and responsible for providing technical leadership and quality assurance across the organization’s portfolio of health work. I am a medical doctor with a Masters’ Degree in Maternal & Child Health and over 28 years of international experience in health programme design, management, implementation and evaluation. I have worked at all levels of the health system from community to national and international, applying the use of evidence-based interventions and developing strategies to promote universal health coverage, increase accessibility and quality of care, and address inequity. I have conducted a wide range of programme designs, reviews, evaluations and impact assessments in Asia and Africa. My particular passion is equitable maternal and newborn health and I am a member of the Stillbirth advocacy working group.
