Dr Tahmina Begum

Senior Research Assistant

Tahmina holds an MBBS with a master’s degree in public health from Bangladesh and a PhD from The University of Queensland. Her doctoral research project was on caesarean section birth and its impact on maternal and offspring health in Australia.

Prior to completing her PhD, Tahmina had fourteen years of experience in obstetric patient management and the implementation of research in maternal and child health care in Bangladesh. Her analytical skill lie in meta-analysis, group-based trajectory modelling and longitudinal data analysis. Her key achievements are in the public health research fields and she has authored 14 peer reviewed publications, and received research grants as principal investigator from Measure Evaluation USA and the Fred Hollow Foundation, Bangladesh.

She has presented her research findings to several international conferences related to maternal and health system research, and also presented as a plenary speaker in the fifth Heath System Research Symposium in Liverpool, UK, in 2018.

Tahmina has a special interest in qualitative research exploring client and provider perception of diseases; and how to design appropriate study interventions addressing community needs. Research to policy communication is her ultimate focus for which she served as a technical expert for national advisory committees of Bangladesh for the Prevention of Caesarean Section, Averting Maternal Death, and the Quality Improvement Committee.
