Sayed Ataullah Saeedzai

I am currently a research fellow at Lancaster University. My responsibilities include conducting comprehensive analyses using secondary data from national surveys and qualitative interviews, alongside NHS routine data analysis. I work under the direct supervision of Jo Knight. My academic background includes an MD degree in medicine and an MSc in Epidemiology and Biostatistics from Aga Khan University.

Specializing in public health, I focus on disease surveillance, monitoring & evaluation, and health systems strengthening. In leadership roles at MoPH and various international organizations in Afghanistan, I led impactful initiatives, notably during health crises like Covid-19. I led numerous national surveys and research studies in collaboration with international universities in Afghanistan.
