https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Ingunn_Engebretsen 

I am a Professor at the Centre for International Health (CIH), Dept of Global Public Health and Primary Care (IGS), University of Bergen. I am a Norwegian medical doctor (MD) holding a PhD from Faculty of Medicine and Odontology, University of Bergen (UiB), 2009. My Cand. Mag. (eqvivalent BchH of Arts) from 1997 from University of Oslo (UiO) gave me a primary introduction to work in Africa and made me determined to devote my career to child survival and thriving. I have been active in global health research with a particular focus on child health: more specifically nutrition, growth, HIV, implementation research and child mental health and development. 

My main methodological focus has been quantitative research involving trials, surveys and cohorts, but also qualitative research including interviews, observations and focus-group discussions, and in addition mixed methods. I have been affiliated to Centre for International Health (CIH), University of Bergen as a PhD candidate, a post-doc and recently as a Research council of Norway (Globvac-programme) externally funded researcher. I have worked in Helse Bergen as a clinician and had parts of my post-doc period in Cape Town and was affiliated to University of Western Cape.

I participate extensively in teaching and I have supervised and co-supervised numerous Master and PhD-candidates and have broad research project experience.

I am responsible for the Global mental health research group at CIH and also in the working group for  Centre for Nutrition.

I have worked on larger trials as a member of the PROMISE consortium that undertook two multi-centre phase III trials: One on promotion of peer support for Exclusive breastfeeding where I had a sentinel role in implementation, analysis and writing (DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/S0140-6736(11)60738-1); and, one on infant HIV prophylaxis during breastfeeding where I was particularly involved in instrument development (DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/S0140-6736(15)00984-8).

Both these two trials have had recent 5-8 year follow up on child development assessment where I have been in the steering committees. I have been involved in other experimental designs after this, primarily within nutrition (pan Africa clinical trial registry PACTR201705002283263) and child development. I have fulfilled three years in Child and Adolescent-psychiatry and been on numerous stays abroad particularly in Africa. I am/have been involved in projects in Ethiopia, Tanzania, Zambia, Burkina Faso, Uganda, Zambia, South Africa and in the Philippines.

 

Most of the teaching is centered around nutrition, anthropometry, research methodology and mental health.
I teach all levels from bachelor to PhD with a particular focus on nutrition students (bachelor and master), medical students and master of Global health students. I contribute to teaching, seminars and supervision and have more responsibility and tasks for the given courses:

  • Global nutrition, 5sp, course coordinator INTH360
  • Research methods bachelor level, 10sp, nutrition, corse coordinator NUTR230
  • Research methods master level, 9sp, nutrition, course teacher NUTR333
  • Research methods, global health, 5sp, course teacher master level INTH321A and PhD-level INTH921A
  • Elective course on Migration and health, 3sp, master level/medical students INTH344
