helga naburiBefore joining Dartmouth MPH program at 2008, I was on my second year of employment as a lecturer in the department of Pediatrics and child health at Muhimili University of Health and Allied Sciences(MUHAS), holding an MD and Mmed degree from MUHAS. Also I was working as a clinical director for the Dar Dar pediatric clinic (DPP) which was formed under collaboration between MUHAD and Dartmouth. While studying at Dartmouth, I worked with the database from the Maine state to “assess the maternal underweight as a risk factor for preterm delivery” and I am currently working on publishing the findings.

After graduating from the MPH program I went back home to work with the same institution with more focus in research in addition to teaching and clinical practice. Recently I was awarded a one year fellowship by ICOHRTA Training Program at the Harvard School of Public Health focusing on strengthening pediatric HIV/AIDS researchers in the context of global health. After completing the fellowship I am planning to register for doctoral program at Karolinska institutet focusing on Mother to child prevention of HIV (PMTCT).
