In 2013, Diarra worked as a research assistant in the project Health Inequality Cities, a comparative study of socio-territorial constructions of health inequalities in secondary cities of West Africa (Bobo-Dioulasso (Burkina Faso) and Saint-Louis of Senegal), initiated by the Research Institute for Development (IRD). 

Diarra is driven by the will to help the most vulnerable people to live better and healthier lives and is convinced that it is through research that we can improve the living conditions of populations.
