School of Health Sciences hosts Eisenhower Fellow Lecture on post-revolution Egypt
“We are very honored that the Eisenhower Fellowships Program chose USD to support Ms. ElSharkawy’s efforts to strengthen the Egyptian child protection system,” said Michael Lawler, Ph.D, dean of USD’s School of Health Sciences.
ElSharkawy is responsible for policymaking, planning, implementation and monitoring of programs at the National Council for Childhood and Motherhood (NCCM), the highest body in Egypt entrusted with issues that impact the development of millions of children and mothers. She also has nearly 10 years of experience in disability programs and has participated in international events and conducted qualitative studies in Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Afghanistan and Kenya. Her current responsibilities include strategic development, implementation and evaluation of the newly created Child Protection Unit.
On her fellowship, ElSharkawy will research legislation and policies that will contribute to putting in place an Egyptian national child protection system, as well as explore effective child advocacy strategies and communication tools.
