Research Biography

Associate Professor Mwanri has extensive experience in a wide range of public health issues. Her PhD investigated a range of health impacts of micronutrient supplements in anaemic and disadvantaged children in resource poor schools. She has worked with culturally and linguistically diverse migrants in Australia to address various health issues including poor dietary patterns and physical inactivity. Her experience and interest in migration and public health medicine has led to research activity in healthy ageing, adaptation to climate change and other health and social issues in CALD migrants. She has close collaborations with many CALD communities and organisations across Australia and has worked in the government institutions including SA Health. She chairs several committees related to migration, public health and chronic disease including HIV/AIDS. Her interest in Global health resulted in bringing 33 fellows from East Africa to build capacity and enhance the global implementation of Millennium Development Goals to improve maternal health outcomes and child survival.
