Iryna Mogilevkina received her training in obstetrics and gynaecology at the Donetsk State Medical University,
Ukraine (graduated in 1981). She obtained her PhD (Candidate of Science) degree from the Scientific Research
Institute of Paediatrics, Obstetrics and Gynaecology in Kyiv, in 1991. She defended her PhD thesis at Uppsala

Academy, Kyiv and was appointed Professor at the Donetsk State Medical University, Ukraine and later at the
Bogomolets National Medical University, Kyiv, Ukraine. Her extensive experience in maternal care, involvement
in the development of national protocols as well as successful implementation of various national and inter
national projects contributed to the enhancement of maternal and child care in Ukraine. She was awarded several
scholarships, including Uppsala University Scholarships (1999, 2002, 2015, 2022).

Mogilevkina’s scholarly interests revolve around exploring various aspects of sexual and reproductive health in
Ukraine, including providers’ and patients’ attitudes towards care. She has published over 300 articles, primarily
in Ukrainian and Russian but also in English. Some of her publications include: “Factors Associated with Pregnancy Termination in Ukrainian Women” (2000); “Ukrainian Medical Students’ Experiences, Attitudes, and Knowledge
about Reproductive Health” (2001); “Using the Nordic-Baltic Perinatal Death Classification to Assess Perinatal
Care in Ukraine” (2002); “Ukrainian Medical Students' Attitudes to Parenthood and Knowledge of Fertility”
(2016); and “Effectiveness of Emergency Obstetric Care Training at the Regional Level in Ukraine: A Non-
randomized Controlled Trial” (2022).

At SCAS, in collaboration with Professor Hoyda (Shupyk National HealthCare University of Ukraine), Mogilevkina
will explore sexual and reproductive health and rights services, policies, and status and humanity in maternal and
child care in post-socialist Ukraine (1991-2014).
