Biography 

Dr. Kimberly Green leads PATH’s global Primary Health Care program, which includes teams focusing on Early Childhood Development; Health Systems, Innovation, and Delivery; HIV and Tuberculosis; Maternal, Newborn, Child Health and Nutrition; Noncommunicable Diseases; and Sexual and Reproductive Health. Prior to assuming this role, Dr. Green led PATH’s global HIV and TB portfolio, including the USAID/PATH Healthy Markets project which leveraged innovation and partnerships to increase key population access to essential health services.

Dr. Green has nearly thirty years’ experience in public health management, policy development and research. She deeply believes in the power of primary health care to improve health access and equity and is specifically interested in health service delivery innovations; the role of lay providers in delivering health care; self-care and digital health; private-public sector partnerships; and social and behavior change communications.

Before joining PATH, Dr. Green directed and supported several global and regional primary health care projects focused on HIV, TB, hypertension, SRH, malaria and MNCHN in Africa and Asia, partnering with ministries of health, communities and private sector to incubate and scale-up evidence-based approaches. She has worked with FHI 360, CARE Cambodia, Plan International, Global Health Council, and was a health fellow with PACT Cambodia.

Dr. Green is a member of the WHO Global PrEP Coalition and HIV testing technical working group, Deputy Editor for the Journal of the International AIDS Society, scientific committee member for the International AIDS Society conference and Clinical Associate Professor in the University of Washington Global Health Program.
