Congratulating Dr. Ingrid Katz: Director for Behavioral Sciences at the Office of the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator

The Harvard Global Health Institute (HGHI) would like to express our sincere congratulations to Dr. Ingrid Katz, MD, MHS, on her appointment as the Director for Behavioral Sciences for PEPFAR | Bureau of Global Health Security and Diplomacy at the Office of the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator.

Dr. Katz has been an invaluable contributor to HGHI since assuming the position of Associate Faculty Director in 2018. Her expertise and commitment have had an important impact on the institute’s initiatives, including HGHI’s LEAD Fellowship for Promoting Women in Global Health and the Burke Global Health Fellowship. We have no doubt that Dr. Katz’s leadership and expertise will continue to have a transformative impact in her new role.

Dr. Katz will step down from her HGHI leadership position to fully take on her responsibilities at PEPFAR beginning July 3rd where, as the Director for Behavioral Sciences, she will shape and implement strategies to address behavioral factors and social determinants of health in the global coordination of AIDS relief efforts. We eagerly anticipate the important influence Dr. Katz will undoubtedly have at PEPFAR and, once again, extend our gratitude and warmest congratulations to her. Dr. Katz will continue in her role as Associate Physician in the Division of Women’s Health at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Associate Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School.
