She holds degrees in obstetrics and gynecology from the University of London, is the director of a hospital in the southern city of Diwaniah, and a lecturer at the local medical college. Through her two NGOs, Rajaa has been developing new programs to address the pressing health, education, and psychosocial needs specific to women in a war torn country attempting reconstruction. She is president of the Women's Organization in Diwaniah, founder of the Women's Health Center in Baghdad, and founder of the Iraqi Widows' Organization, which supports widows with training programs and short term loans for their small businesses.
