      Megan Mahoney, MD is Associate Clinical Professor in the Department of Family and Community Medicine, and has been part of the DFCM faculty at UCSF since 2004. Currently based in Nairobi Kenya, Dr. Mahoney is the UCSF East Africa Director for the University of California San Francisco and Gladstone Institute Center for AIDS Research. In this role, she leads an East African office located in Nairobi Kenya that serves the interests of UCSF-affiliated research, training and service programs in the region. She is a regional resource to the more than 100 UCSF faculty and students living, visiting, and working in the region, particularly junior investigators and trainees as well as those from institutions partnering with UCSF. She interacts with local partners, academic institutions, NGOs, international agencies, government representatives, and donors throughout the region to identify prospective funding opportunities and explore new partnerships.

      Dr. Mahoney is the inaugural program director for the family medicine residency program and leads the Integrated Primary Health Care Program at Aga Khan University East Africa. The family medicine training is the second of its kind in Kenya. The IPHC program tests innovative, multi-disciplinary strategies to integrate primary health care systems in rural Kenya, through a public private partnership with the government and the community.

      Dr. Mahoney’s research focuses on HIV prevention among high risk individuals, including women with incarcerated partners and partners of HIV infected persons, and on medical education in family and community medicine, primary health care, interprofessionalism, and global health.

      Previously she served as the medical director of the Family HIV Clinic at the San Francisco General Hospital which provides HIV and Hepatitis C treatment services for San Francisco’s indigent population. She was principal investigator of an HIV prevention intervention targeting women partners of incarcerated men, called the Health Access Program for Prevention, Empowerment and Networking (HAPPEN), funded by the Health and Human Services’ Office on Women’s Health.

      As an HIV consultant for the National HIV/AIDS Clinicians’ Consultation Center (NCCC) 2004-2012, she provided consultation on HIV to clinicians across the country. NCCC is funded by a federal grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Services. Through her work at NCCC, she served as a consultant for the Ethiopia Fitun Warmline.

      Dr. Mahoney also served as an HIV and Hepatitis C consultant for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. Dr. Mahoney provided consultation for the HIV and Hepatitis C care of 80-110 HIV-infected incarcerated women in the California Correctional Women’s Facility, provided services to thousands of HIV-infected inmates throughout the state of California, and served as a HIV consultant for prison health care personnel.

      Dr. Mahoney received her bachelor’s degree in Immunology from University of California Berkeley in 1996, her medical degree from University of California San Francisco School of Medicine in 2001, and completed her residency training in family medicine at the San Francisco General Hospital in 2004.
