Research information:

Dr. Rukhsana Ahmed’s research embraces the cross/trans/inter-disciplinary nature of communication scholarship, with specific focus on exploring the role of communication processes in improving health outcomes among marginalized communities and promoting broader social changes in international health contexts. She is particularly interested in the ways in which systems of beliefs, values, actions, and symbols are shared, or not, by people and how social groups influence communication in health care interactions. She is also interested in the ways in which people’s cultural selves become entwined with race, ethnicity, gender, and social class groups and shape their perceptions of health, illness, and health care. Although her research is deeply rooted in health communication, Dr. Ahmed is also actively involved in interdisciplinary and multisectoral projects and partnerships in other realms of communication, including immigrant integration, multicultural media, and religious diversity.

Research information:

As an agronomist by training, with a PhD in genetics and plant breeding, I’ve worked in a wide array of contexts and countries. I have held long-term positions in Ivory Coast, Réunion Island, Canada, Brazil and France, as well as gone on missions in close to 40 countries. My scientific efforts have centred mostly on corn and sugar cane. Over time, given my responsibilities as a director of research, I became interested in the links between the social sciences and agronomics in general, with a special focus on the interaction between social dynamics, governance models and global transformations in rural settings.

Over the past four years, I worked as research and strategy director for CIRAD (Centre de coopération internationale en recherche agronomique pour le développement), which focuses on the prime issues surrounding the role of agriculture in southern hemisphere nations, both from the discipline’s traditional perspectives (production, transformation, food production and processing, etc.) and from its newer angles (environmental impact, ecological services, poverty reduction, land management, multi-functionality, etc.). At CIRAD, I played an active role in recasting and redirecting the research issues and scientific strategies of the major French, European and international centres and institutes in the field.

Humanitarian aid; Health services during humanitarian emergencies; Health response to disasters, conflicts and crises; Foreign medical teams; Surgical care in low- and middle-income countries; Global public health; Coordination of humanitarian aid and assistance; War; Refugee emergencies I study the ways in which health needs are established and prioritized during large humanitarian crises such as natural disasters and wars. I specifically focus on understanding and improving the functioning of health systems and services in crises, and understanding public health statistics such as mortality and malnutrition during disasters and wars. I work as a field-based researcher in global public health, specializing in the assessment and mapping of disrupted health systems in post-conflict and post-disaster settings. My most recent work has involved operational field research in Haiti and Sudan, examining the development of health information systems used to assess the availability of essential health resources and services, including the mapping of health facilities. I have experience in the areas of surgical care, access to essential medicines, health systems strengthening, and health services research in several low- and middle-income countries.

My interest is in examining how intellectual property rights or legal frameworks for governance and protection of knowledge have diverse impacts on many spheres, including but not limited to agriculture, food security, biotechnology, biodiversity conservation, biosafety, human rights (access to health, education and benefits of technology/scientific advancements, etc). I am also concerned with the nature of interaction or impact that intellectual property rights have in regard to developmental aspirations of marginalized peoples, especially indigenous and local communities across the globe. Most of my work focus on mapping and understanding the interface of intellectual property and development. I also work within the broader international political relations of power between Africa, indeed, the global south and the global north.
