Professor, Public Health Department, Faculty of Medicine, Cairo University, Egypt

I am a professor of Public Health and Community Medicine, at Cairo University with research interests on adolescence as it represents a critical transitional phase; research is required along different domains and aspects related to this age group. Needless to mention the diverse health problems including health equity that prone women in many developing countries including Egypt to avoidable morbidity and mortality risk due to normal physiology namely pregnancy and labor. I have vast experience in research, editorial tasks, and other publishing functions. This course would assist me in formulation of research projects that could tackle and solve health problems among adolescents and the pregnant.
