He has a field experience of 15 years in Developing Countries (7 years in ex-Zaire where he worked as leprosy program manager and district medical officer; then 5 + 3 years in Morocco first as WHO civil servant (P5), then as Research Director at the Institute of Research for Development, in support to the National School of Public Health-ENSP, Rabat) and worked in short term visits in a variety of countries in Africa and Asia. His main field of research is the health care system, with a particular focus on maternal health and access to health services (including quality of care and the management of human resources required for the good functioning of health systems). He developed his expertise in the domain of maternal mortality reduction partly through his research work and partly through the elaboration and evaluation exercise of reproductive health strategies in support to ministries of health in LMIC.
