Mohammad Rasheduzzaman Shah,
My current research interest is directed towards improving maternal and child health, specifically towards improving survival of preterm born newborns. Topic of my doctoral thesis was “Risk factors and care seeking for Preterm Birth”.
Given my field work experience for long years and the experience of managing and directing several large field trials on maternal and neonatal health issues, I felt that as a public health physician and researcher I am in a unique position to make necessary and significant contributions in research and public health programming in this area.
My other interests are related to the use of evidence in policy and programs, including the development of research capacity and strengthening of public health training and education in developing countries.
