30091_395982473804_3977104_nHello everybody.

My name is Zulfiya and I am delighted to join RESULTS UK, as the Coordinator for the TB European Coalition (TBEC).

I am originally from Tajikistan, but have been living in the UK since August of 2012. I will be working on the day-to day coordination of the coalition and will contribute to its TB research and advocacy activities.

I recently obtained a Masters degree from the London School of Economics and Political Science, for which I conducted research on “The Role and Challenges of INGOs in tackling TB in Tajikistan”. Through my research as well as through life experience, I have learnt the importance of advocacy to fight TB.

Prior to my studies, I worked with different international development organisations including OSCE, UNDP and Merlin UK in Tajikistan. At OSCE I assisted in the planning, implementation and evaluation of mine action, disarmament and security building projects as well as in the monitoring and advocating for transparent and fair elections. While working with Merlin UK and United Nations, I supported the assistance of aid to communities affected by natural disasters.

I am very excited to be working here at RESULTS UK and am looking forward to engaging in the work around TB in the WHO European Region and working with the rest of the team.
