Salima Meherali


My research interests are in the area of migration and global child & adolescent health. My research program comprises three areas of inquiry -immigrant adolescent/youth in Canada, sexual and reproductive health and rights and mental health of immigrant youth in Canada and in the developing world, and theorizing gender intersections within vulnerable populations. As a principal investigator, I have been involved in community-based participatory action research projects to actively engage with adolescents/youth to evaluate their mental health and sexual and reproductive health needs in Canada and in the global health context. I have a special interest in research synthesis, scaling up evidence-based interventions in community settings, and knowledge translation research.
