Research

Mazeda Hossain is a social epidemiologist based at the Gender, Violence and Health Centre within the Social and Mathematical Epidemiology Group at the LSHTM. She specializes in the evaluation of violence prevention and response programming in humanitarian and conflict-affected settings. Her research interests focus on conflict-affected populations including refugees, internally displaced people, stateless populations, and asylum seekers. She has led multi-disciplinary and multi-country research projects, developed guidelines on GBV research methods in humanitarian settings, and co-organises the short course ‘Researching Gender Based Violence: Methods and Meaning’ at LSHTM.

She is currently leading an evaluation in the Dadaab refugee camps in Kenya of the GBV response services which use a task-sharing approach with refugee community workers. She also recently led a cluster randomised controlled trial in Côte d'Ivoire, which was one of the first trials to rigorously evaluate an intimate partner violence prevention intervention in an armed conflict setting working directly with men.
