More About

Matthew Bonds is an associate professor of global health and social medicine at Harvard Medical School, and co-founder of PIVOT, a global health NGO that partners with the Madagascar government to establish a district level model health system. He holds a PhD in economics and a PhD in ecology from the University of Georgia. His research focuses on 1) the ecology of poverty and economic development; 2) infectious disease modelling, and 3) the science of global health delivery systems. With novel data systems at all levels of care (community, primary and secondary care), PIVOT has generated some of the most rigorously evaluated population level impacts of any local health initiative in Africa. His work has been supported by PIVOT, the NIH, the NSF, the Gates Foundation, James S. McDonnell Foundation, and the Mulago Foundation, among others.
