I have a BSc in Nursing from Islamic Azad University/Iran and MSc and Ph.D. in Maternity Nursing from Hawler Medical University, Kurdistan Region, Iraq. My scientific title is professor, and I am the Dean of College of Health Sciences and the Director of the Center for Research and Education in Women's Health, Hawler Medical University. I was an established member of the College of Nursing in 2001 in the above mentioned university. Also, I was the former head of the Midwifery Department in the College of Nursing, Hawler Medical University, Erbil, Iraq for seven years. I have authored/ co-authored more than 50 research papers in nursing, midwifery, women's health, heath services research, conflict, and health and medical education in Iraqi Kurdistan contexts that were published in well-reputed and highly accessible journals. I have supervised six MSc and one Ph.D. students. The theses of two of my MSc students were on adolescents' health. My participation in the Training course in adolescent sexual and reproductive health 2018 inspired me to encourage my MSc students to conduct research on female adolescent health. I have successfully implemented several researches and projects for improving nursing and midwifery care in the Kurdistan region.

As the GFMER coordinator for Iraq, I would like to appreciate GFMER’s efforts at improving Sexual and Reproductive Health in Iraq through holding training courses for participants from Iraq and Kurdistan Region, and providing them with sponsorship offered by WHO EMRO.
