Amnesty's programmatic and research interests remain focused on reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health (RMNCH) programs in low- and middle-income countries. Much of her work to date has focused on the design, implementation, and evaluation of new technologies and packages of integrated RMNCH services, including conducting outcome/ impact assessments; economic analyses (value for money, cost-effectiveness/ utility, equity, and identifying financial barriers to care); assessments of quality of care; assessments of health information systems; and ensuring the sufficiency and optimal use of human resources for RMNCH.
In recent years, her technical work includes anchoring teams that lead large-scale evaluations that quantify burden of disease (e.g maternal and child mortality in Afghanistan); explore optimal service integration (e.g. Family planning into a platform of MNCH services in Bangladesh); and/or improve service delivery (e.g. midwifery services in Afghanistan; effectiveness of community health workers and community to facility linkages in Tanzania and Bangladesh, etc.). She also presently serves as the monitoring and evaluation technical lead for the John Hopkins University’s Global mHealth Initiative and in this capacity lead several program evaluations including a large a 10-country evaluation of nutrition content sent through mobile platforms in sub-Saharan Africa and a recently awarded grant from WHO to provide support to 16 grantees.
Through her technical work, she extensively facilitates collaborative relationships with key stakeholders, including senior Ministry of Health officials, international agency program officers, NGO managers, colleagues based in research organizations and universities throughout low and middle income countries.
