Ms Sarah Moxon BNurs DICHC MPH

Research Assistant


I currently work for Professor Joy Lawn’s team in the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology where I provide research and technical support to the Every Newborn Action Plan and Saving Newborn Lives project. My PhD, and current work, is focused on improving the quality of care for small and sick newborns and developing the associated metrics for monitoring these programmes.

I have a degree in nursing from the University of Manchester and have worked as a neonatal nurse at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children and Homerton University Hospital in London. In 2008, I began to develop my career in public health through studying a diploma in International Community Health Care and a Masters in Public Health at Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and the University of Liverpool.

Since then, I have worked in Nicaragua, Argentina, Libya, Malawi, Uganda and most recently South Sudan on a variety of maternal, newborn and child health and HIV programmes. In the last few years, I have focused especially on evaluations of child survival programmes and facility based assessment of quality of care for women, children and newborns.
