Najmeh Bahmanziari

Najmeh is a Ph.D. Candidate in Health Policy with an educational background in healthcare management. She has had in-depth engagement in eye health services design, (PEC into PHC) integration requirements, and educational framework. She has translated the WHO training manual for PEC (the content which has been developed for Africa) in Farsi. Through her contributions in the past 5 years, we already have the needed groundwork for piloting PEC in a region in Iran. She is an active contributor in Iran’s Vision 2020 landmark report and an infrastructure concept in community ophthalmology (a non-governmental research, outreach, and eye-self-care initiative).

“My desire is to participate in and lead applied research and strive to improve the connection between research and policy-making, which lays the groundwork for offering better eye care and services and developing equity for all members of the society, especially neglected groups and unsuccessful ones in the social lottery. I believe PEC strengthening has a huge impact on the UHC cause.”
