Chloe Teasdale, PhD, MPH, is the Deputy Director for Research at ICAP-Columbia University, a global center based at the Mailman School of Public Health which seeks to improve the health of families and communities around the world, and is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Epidemiology. The focus of her professional and academic work is on evaluating the implementation of HIV care and treatment programs with a specific interest in assessing outcomes of children, adolescents and pregnant women living with HIV in resource limited settings. Prior to completing her PhD, she worked in South Africa overseeing monitoring and evaluation for mothers2mothers, a regional public health organization focused on reducing mother-to-child transmission of HIV through peer support and education. This formative experience in public health practice working with healthcare providers and mothers across seven African countries fueled her passion to improve health services for women and children around the world and continues to inform her approach to research. A major focus of Dr. Teasdale's epidemiologic research has been the use of routinely collected medical record data from HIV care and treatment service sites in resource limited settings to examine patient outcomes. She has designed and led studies examining the impact of targeted service interventions for children, adolescents and pregnant women, including a prospective cohort study of South African children living with HIV funded by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) which measured virologic suppression after initiation of antiretroviral therapy (ART), longevity of viral suppression and treatment adherence.
