Dr Nada Abdelmagid

Assistant Professor in Human Health Prac

United Kingdom

I'm an Assistant Professor in Humanitarian Health Practice at the LSHTM. I'm a medical doctor and epidemiologist from Sudan, with extensive experience in public health programming in humanitarian settings. I filled a variety of technical advisory and programmatic roles, supporting design, delivery and monitoring of health programmes in Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Turkey among other crises.

In my current role at the LHSTM, I'm a member of the RAISE project's research team working to assess the governance and delivery of childhood vaccines, particularly for zero-dose children and missed communities, in humanitarian settings. I'm also the founding member of the Sudan COVID-19 Research Group, a community-led, youth-powered movement to support the response to COVID-19 and other public health emergencies in Sudan through evidence generation, capacity building and policy impact.

I hold a Postgraduate Diploma and Master of Science in Epidemiology from LSHTM and am a member of the Global Health Cluster’s Public Health Information Services Task Team. I'm currently a PhD candidate at LSHTM, exploring the risk perceptions of competing epidemic-prone disease in contexts that are highly vulnerable to epidemics, using Sudan as a case study.
