Professor Oona Campbell BS ScM PhD

Professor of Epidemiology and Reproductive Health


I am a reproductive epidemiologist with degrees in demography, epidemiology and biology. I currently lead the maternal health programme. My areas of expertise include measurement of maternal morbidity and mortality, perinatal mortality and evaluation of different modes of delivering maternal health and family planning services.




I organize Extended Epidemiology and teach on it. I also teach on Foundations in Reproductive Health Research; Family Planning; Current Issues in Maternal and Perinatal Health; Basic Epidemiology.


I have worked in the Middle East (Lebanon, Egypt, Jordan, Turkey), in West Africa (Benin, Nigeria, and Ghana), and in the Philippines, Indonesia and Brazil. I have collaborated with a number of Ministries of Health and agencies (including MotherCare, DFID, WHO, World Bank, UNICEF, USAID and Ford Foundation).
