Dr Maysoon Dahab
of Infectious Disease Epidemiology
I am an infectious disease epidemiologist and the co-director of the Sudan Research Group. I work mainly on operational health research in low-income countries especially in crises affected settings. Previously my research involved work with Johns Hopkins School of Public Health in Malawi, Save the Children USA in Ethiopia, The Aurum Institute for Health and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in South Africa, as well as the Sudan Federal Ministry of Health. Currenlty, I co-lead a research and advocacy research project in Sudan to estimate mortality impact of violent conflict and COVID-19. The research use a communit-led approach where community volunteer researchers drive the design, implemntation, analysis, and translation of the research findings.
