Hazel Chidzawo

I am passionate about research with policy implications that enhance sexual and reproductive health and rights. I hold a Master of Science degree in Demography and Population Studies and a Bachelor of Social Science degree in Social Anthropology from Great Zimbabwe University. I also have a certificate in Monitoring and Evaluation from the University of Zimbabwe with a concentration in clinical practice and research ethics, as well as certifications in research, nutrition, sexual and reproductive health, and HIV/AIDS programming. These academic experiences are complemented by my professional experience in the non-governmental sector. In various capacities, I have contributed to health-focused project planning and implementation and the mentorship of children and youth.

Presently, my research interests are in sexual and reproductive health and rights. I would like to see the realization and fulfillment of people’s sexual and reproductive health needs and rights regardless of one’s social background. Based on my Master’s thesis, I have co-published an article on youths and sexual reproductive health, which has appeared in the Journal of Biological and Pharmaceutical Sciences. I believe that research should be a collaborative process and have sought to ensure that stakeholders are collaborators in my research. I endeavor to enhance my skills and competencies by strategically associating myself with dynamic organizations that seek a positive and lasting impact on people’s lives.
