Mahmoda supports health and care organisations to address the health inequalities affecting their populations. She does this through engagement with both the communities they serve and the workers they employ. Additionally, Mahmoda trains communities and staff in the NHS, helping them to develop their own skills in qualitative methods.

She is passionate about public health, community development, and addressing the wider determinants of health and wellbeing, with a particular focus on involving voices of the seldom heard. She champions equality, equity, diversity and inclusion in health care services and beyond.
