Ifakara Health Institute (IHI) senior scientist, Dr. Masuma Mamdani, is among speakers at this year’s World Health Summit (WHS 2017) scheduled for Berlin, Germany from October 15-17. The conference theme this year is “Science – Innovation – Policies.”
A WHS official, Kristin Keller, informed Dr. Mamdani of the invitation to the global top flight conference as one of the speakers in an email recently. “We are very much looking forward to welcoming you as one of our speakers to the World Health Summit 2017,” reads the email notification in part.
Dr. Mamdani – a seasoned international public health and public policy expert – will give a talk in a session on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which is scheduled to last one and half an hour on October 16, the second day of the summit.
Masuma (pictured) has worked in several low- and middle-income countries. She has extensive experience in health systems research, focusing on access, equity and quality, with particular attention to practical policy analysis and processes in support of change. She has taught medical and public health students, and presently is a senior researcher at IHI. #
