Daniele Mazzone

EQUAL Project Director

Daniele Mazzone serves as the Project Director for EQUAL, bringing with him extensive management experience and technical expertise in project management, contract management, and operations in both the private and non-profit sectors. EQUAL is the IRC-led multi-country research consortium generating evidence on effective approaches to delivering life-saving maternal and newborn health care in DRC, Nigeria, Somalia, and South Sudan.

Among his significant achievements, between 2017 and 2019, he led the design and successful implementation of the first large-scale stabilization intervention in the Nineveh plains of Iraq after the end of the ISIS occupation. In the subsequent years, from 2020 to 2022, he managed the delivery of the ASCEND Lot 1 project, the FCDO flagship program aimed at controlling and eliminating five Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) in 11 countries across Asia and Africa.

Daniele holds a Bachelor’s degree in Economics from Bocconi University and a Master’s in Management of Public Administration and International Institutions from Bocconi University and Sciences-Po Paris.
