Sangeeta Tripathi, MPP
Operations and Strategy Director
Sangeeta joined the HEAL Initiative after more than a decade of work in global health and a deep belief in the possibility of a more just world. She has worked on the rapid acceleration of pediatric HIV treatment and on strategies to scale the prevention of mother to child transmission of HIV (pMTCT) with the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI), UNICEF, and the WHO-primarily francophone Africa. She has focused on working with key stakeholders – especially Ministries of Health, partners, and local health workers, to build ever-more responsive and impactful programming at sub-national, national, and global levels. In recent years, she has focused on health system transformation through health worker capacity building, in partnership with Ethiopia’s national CEMONC training program and SPARK Health Africa.
Sangeeta earned her Bachelors in International Development (Brown) and a Masters in Public Policy (Harvard Kennedy School) but has learned the most from working alongside and in support of public sector workers on the African continent. Sangeeta believes deeply in strengthening people, teams, and in innovating systems to transform what is possible in health.
