Malika Ahmad - Former MPH Student

We are always interestd to hear from our Alumni. We recently heard from one of of our former students, Malika Ahmad, that she had been successful in obtaining a Research and Training Coordinator post with the Aga Khan Health Service in Pakistan (AKHSP), a branch of the Aga Khan Development Network. Malika informs us that AKHSP - in collaboration with GAVI ALLIANCE and the Government of Pakistan - is working on an 18 month project related to maternal and child health. This is an intiative by the GAVI Alliance to see if public-private partnerships work in developing countries where infant and maternal mortality is high. Pakistan was chosen as one of the 10 pilot countries and AKHSP was chosen as the implementing Civil Society Organisation (CSO). Malika will be working in an underdeveloped area known as Tando Allayar in the province of Sindh. The project was launched in Hyderabad on August 4th 2009. Read the press report.
