James Lee



Instructor/Tutor
MSc Global Health Program

James Lee specializes in applied research addressing operational challenges in international health and nutrition.  His work in this field intersects with several communities of practice, including Implementation Science, Human-centred Design, and Aid Effectiveness. Between 2002 and 2007, Jamie was member of the UK-based team that gathered the evidence for the outpatient model for treatment of severe acute malnutrition (later adopted globally as best-practice). A unifying feature of his work is the employment of a mixed-methods approach to elucidate the user perspective and identify potential barriers to uptake or adherence. Jamie has over 25 years of experience in the international health arena, both in the humanitarian and the development settings, and has undertaken assignments with UNICEF, the World Bank, The Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition, Nutritional International, and numerous Canadian and international NGOs.
