Verona Mathews specialises in Health Information Systems. Having worked with a national rollout of the District Health Information System in South Africa where she facilitated and co-ordinated the development, training and implementation of the system, more recently she has expanded this field, specifically focussing on the decentralisation of human resource management in the public health sector. Her research focus is on the human resources for health specifically in the areas of monitoring and evaluation, human resource management and information system. She works on both national and district levels to design and implement a human resource information system to inform evidence-based planning and decision-making.

Verona obtained her PhD in Public Health in 2017.
