The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine is the national school of public
health of the UK and the only stand alone postgraduate medical school as well. A
recognised global center of excellence in research and teaching, it is the oldest (100
years in 1999) school of public health in the world, one of the 2 largest and the most
international. It is considered an independent college in the UK giving masters and
doctoral degrees and is rated by the government in the research assessment
exercise as one of the top research institutions. During my tenure, each year the
School had students from more than 100 countries, research and teaching programs
in more than 50 countries and academic faculty stationed in 15 countries.
Although part of the University of London in name, the School is essentially
independent as are the other 15 colleges because the University is federal and
exercises no real control over management. Funding decisions rest completely with
the individual institutions. The Dean is the CEO and reports to a Board of Management which has ultimate responsibility. The position of Dean is the equivalent therefore of a college president in the US and as such she/he is a member of the UK Committee of Vice Chancellors and Principals (CVCP). I was the first Dean not from the United Kingdom. My tenure at the School was marked by intensive, consultative, managed change as the School met new challenges and opportunities in a rapidly changing, increasingly competitive environment. I represented the School at numerous venues in the UK, Europe and globally. I worked closely with the Board of Management and its Chair as well as with the Finance Committee. Major milestones 1996-2000 include:
Initiated school-wide consultation and strategic planning process resulting in
Initiation of the first Appeal (Development) Campaign in the School’s history.
Plan prepared and approved by Board for £10 million (about $16 million USD) and appeal officer recruited. About $45 million USD including a major gift from the Gates Foundation was achieved in the first 3 years of the Campaign.
Incorporation of a 501 (3) in the US- The American Friends of the London
School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine for development activities
Led School-wide, multidisciplinary research strategic planning process
resulting in departmental research strategies. Research income increased significantly.
Strategy developed and implemented for recruitment of students resulting in
and increase of more than 100 MSc student and 30+ doctoral resident students, the meeting of targets for the first time and an increase in applications of more than 15%. The School remains highly selective, possibly the most selective institution of its kind.
Development of distance-based learning with 3 MSc degrees (management,
infectious diseases and epidemiology) now offered with more than 800 students enrolled from more than 100 countries
Development of an investment strategy and contract to professional group to
manage portfolio in excess of £14 million (about $22 million USD)
Doctorate of Public Health (DrPH) and 4 new masters degrees initiated
Short and medium term space strategy with business plan developed and
approved by Board. New premises leased and refurbished and major renovations undertaken in other buildings.
Reserves (the equivalent of endowment and funds functioning as endowment)
increased by about £7 million ( about $11 million USD)
Tulane is one of the most international US schools of public health. It is the only one
with departments of tropical medicine and international health and development.
(The latter department was created while I was dean). During this time, student
numbers more than doubled, faculty numbers grew from the 40’s to almost 100,
research income (particularly NIH funding) more than doubled, a successful capital
campaign was carried out, endowment grew, Humphrey Fellows and Peace Corps
programs were continued and expanded, the number of international programs and
students increased dramatically and strong collaborations and partnerships were
created with other schools including medicine, law, business, engineering, and social
work. Joint degree programs (MD/MPH, MBA/MPH,etc) were strengthened. A new
continuing education and degree program for the Association of Physician
Executives was begun. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 1987-1991
As Chief of the Parasitic Diseases Branch, I managed more that 100 personnel
including bench scientists, vector control experts, chemists, water experts,
epidemiologists, bio-statisticians, behavioural scientists, EIS officers, technologists
and support staff working on parasitic diseases. The Branch had a number of global
health programs including ones in Egypt, Kenyaand Peru.
World Health Organization 1984-1987
I was senior medical officer with the malaria action programme. I managed an
ambitious programme of malaria control targeted to 3 countries in the WHO African
Region (Togo, Zambia and Cameroon) and 3 in the WHO Western Pacific Region
(Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, and Papua New Guinea). I worked closely with WHO
and local government officials as well as with communities in malaria endemic areas.
Most of my time was spent in these 6 countries. In 1983 and 1984, at the invitation
of Jonathon Mann, then director, I worked with the developing WHO program on
HIV/AIDS. They had few permanent staff. I made visits to African countries to help
the government carry out assessments and prepare plans to address this
devastating public health epidemic. Kenya 1979-1984
In Kenya, I was a senior lecturer teaching in the Department of Community Medicine,
University of Nairobi. I was also the senior physician and malaria coordinator for the
Kenya Medical Research Institute with responsibility for laboratory and field studies.
I was also a physician in the Clinical Research Centre providing medical care.
The main focus of my time in Kenya was the Saradidi Rural Health Development
Program, a research, teaching and service program based at Saradidi, a community
of about 50,000 people in western Kenya, on the shores of Lake Victoria near
Kisumu. Mentored by Dr Dan Kaseje, the Kenya senior project leader, I worked with
him to train a network of community health volunteers that would provide medical
and preventive services directly to people living in their village. We documented the
formation of the network, monitored demographic trend, collected morbidity and
mortality data and conducted epidemiological and behavioural studies. We worked
in full partnership with the people of Saradidi who maintained control of the program
