Personal Statement:

Kate Macintyre has more than fifteen years of professional international experience in the areas of program management, health policy, reproductive health (including adolescent reproductive health, maternal health and HIV/AIDS), behavior change programming for infectious diseases including HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, monitoring and evaluation, and survey/sampling methods.

Macintyre has worked in Latin America and Africa, and is currently focused on projects in Eritrea, Kenya and South Africa. Her projects in Kenya and South Africa are looking at interventions to reduce the burden of malaria, implementing HIV/AIDS programs to reduce stigma and discrimination, and measuring the impact of school-based interventions on adolescent reproductive health. She has more than fifteen peer-reviewed publications.

Macintyre worked on the Evaluation Project from 1993 through 1996 with Professor Bilsborrow from the University of North Carolina, to test the quality and cost of data gathered using rapid assessment surveys for family planning evaluation in Ecuador. She has also been intensively working for the past two years on the MEASURE Evaluation Project, focusing on malaria and tuberculosis measurement issues for monitoring and evaluation. Macintyre has also been advising and supporting the development of a multidisciplinary doctoral training program for the National Cuban School for Public Health in Havana. Macintyre received her doctorate from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, in Health Policy and Administration.
