Dr Wesam Mansour

Post-Doctoral Research Associate

I am an Egyptian physician, a Paediatric and Neonatology Specialist, a Health System Researcher, a Healthcare Quality and Accreditation Professional, and a Fellow at the International Society for Quality in Healthcare (ISQua), with a Ph.D. in Health Policy and Management from the University of Manchester, UK. I came to LSTM with practical and research expertise in healthcare quality, external evaluation systems and accreditation, patient safety, and patient care.

At LSTM, I have added research expertise in the health workforce and health systems strengthening in fragile contexts using qualitative research and participatory action research approaches. I have also learned about gender, equity, and justice and how to apply those concepts to develop gender-equitable, resilient, and inclusive health systems.


I provide a lecture on decision space analysis in the Human Resource Management and Planning module
I am currently working with the team to develop the new Organisation and Management of Health Services Module
