IHHD presents "engagement" as a missing public health function 

The Institute for Health and Human Development (IHHD) hosts a seminar discussing the role of academia and researchers in addressing “engagement” as a missing public health function of the 21st century.  
The seminar will be delivered by Asiya Odugleh-Kolev, a representative of the World Health Organization’s Community and Social Interventions office within their Universal Health Coverage & Quality Unit (QHC). The time is 10.30 am-12 pm.

Ms Odugleh-Kolev currently leads the Service Delivery and Safety Department’s work on community engagement for quality, people-centred and resilient health services, where she is coordinating health system innovations to mainstream community engagement as a core function of health services and programmes. 

Her presentation will be given in the context of the WHO framework on integrated people-centred health services and WHO initiatives to mainstream community engagement in global health systems.

Previously, Ms Odugleh-Kolev was team leader, behavioural and social interventions, for epidemic readiness and response. In this role she trained and counselled multidisciplinary rapid response teams as well as being deployed to provide specialist support to countries dealing with infectious disease outbreaks. During her time at WHO she has worked alongside WHO Member States and partners in over 24 countries developing and implementing communication strategies and building capacities at community, district and national levels across a range of health programmes.

Asiya qualified as a Registered General Nurse from the Sheffield School of Nursing; she has a BA (Hons) in Third World Studies with Anthropology from the University of East London; a Postgraduate Diploma in Print Journalism from the University of Westminster, London; and a Master’s in Public Health from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
