Dr. Annie Sparrow (MBBS, MRCP, FRACP, MPH) is Assistant Professor in the Department of Global Health. An Australian, Dr. Sparrow spent her first ten postgraduate years practicing pediatric intensive care and retrieval medicine in Britain and her native Perth, with research focused on the resuscitation of children with septic shock. A brief stint in in Afghanistan under Taliban rule in 1999 led to an engagement in refugees and global health; such that the next few years were divided between providing urgent care in pediatric and adult tertiary institutions, clinical services to refugees in Australian holding facilities, and mobile primary health care for Aboriginals in remote communities (a collision of first and third world health). A Masters in Public Health at Harvard (2004) was followed by field work in Haiti, health education and training of community leaders in northern Afghanistan, clinical work in Darfur and surveillance in infectious disease following Hurricane Katrina with other volunteers from HHI for the ARC. Most recently she spent several years with Catholic Relief Services working on various natural disasters and complex humanitarian crises (East Timor, Sudan, Chad, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Somalia) for their Emergency Response Team, covering a range of concerns (from cholera, malnutrition and mental health and MCH to HIV, leishmaniasis, and first aid for field workers); and a further year as director of UNICEF's malaria program in Somalia for the Global Fund against Aids, Tuberculosis and Malaria, engaged in comprehensive LLIN delivery, case management, BCC, and health systems strengthening with other international and national partners. Since moving to NYC in 2011, in addition to relicensing as a pediatrician she teaches humanitarian aid in complex emergencies and is engaged in research of proximal and distal health outcomes of refugees.

Infectious diseases are set to spread across Syria and Iraq, with deadly consequences. That was the argument of Annie Sparrow, a public health expert at New York's Mount Sinai Hospital, writing this week in the New York Review of Books.
"Jihadism is not the war's only wider threat," she wrote. "For medical workers in the Middle East, it has long been apparent that the catastrophic health effects of Syria's crisis were spilling over into neighboring countries."
Syria has been battling a polio outbreak since mid-2013, with the crippling disease spreading across parts of the opposition-controlled north. Then in April, two cases were recorded in Baghdad - a spread many health professionals attribute directly to the situation in Syria.
"This public health crisis is largely a result of the Syrian government's years of attacks on the medical system in opposition-held parts of the country, with its barrel-bomb and occasional chemical attacks, as well as its withholding of basic public-health measures such as vaccination and safe water," writes Sparrow, who has made a number of trips to Syria and the border region, working with the displaced. She also said the official response from U.N. agencies has been "inadequate," with vaccination efforts "severely hampered by those agencies' mismanagement."
Annie Sparrow: The coverage rates for vaccines in 2010, before the conflict, were 83 percent for polio and 82 percent for measles.
Sparrow: The problem has emerged because of the abuses conducted by the Syrian government, attacks on medical personnel and infrastructure.
Sparrow: They're very contagious, polio and measles - there are 2.5 million refugees registered, and there have to be another 1 million unregistered.
Sparrow: There is such stigma to having polio in this region.
