Dr. Sten Vermund appointed to the Board of ACCESS Health International

Yale School of Medicine

ACCESS Health International is proud to announce the appointment of Dr. Sten Vermund to our Board. Dr. Vermund is a pediatrician and infectious disease epidemiologist at the Yale School of Public Health. He also serves as President of the Global Virus Network, is a member of the U.S. National Academy of Medicine, and is President-Elect of the Connecticut Academy of Science and Engineering.

He works in resource-limited settings on maternal, infant, and child health, notably focused on HIV/AIDS, sexually transmitted infections, COVID-19, and parasitic diseases. Dr. Vermund’s work in implementation science seeks to increase the coverage and quality of infectious and chronic disease services for children and families.

His work on HIV-HPV interactions among women in Bronx methadone programs motivated a change in the 1993 CDC AIDS case surveillance definition and inspired cervical cancer screening programs launched within HIV/AIDS programs around the world.

Dr. Vermund has already been actively involved with ACCESS Health International, serving as a member of the Technical Advisory Group for the Global Learning Collaborative for Health Systems Resilience, and we welcome his future valuable contributions.
