    Collapse Overview
    Roberta Horth is a technical advisor with UCSF Global Health Sciences where she supports CDC-PEPFAR funded HIV surveillance projects among key populations. Dr. Horth has developed materials and conducted several workshops for public health leaders in the topic areas of sampling techniques, including respondent driven sampling, cluster and time location sampling, data management, data analysis and scientific writing.

    She previously served as the in-country Program Manager of PEPFAR-funded HIV surveillance projects in Mozambique. During that time, the Mozambique team, under the leadership of Dr. Horth, led several integrated behavioral surveillance surveys (IBBS) in key populations at higher risk for HIV infection, including Men that have Sex with Men, Female Sex Workers, Long-distance Truck Drivers and Mineworkers, and People Who Inject Drugs. The team also supported an HIV sentinel survey among pregnant women attending antenatal care (ANC) and an assessment of the utility of program data from ANC for surveillance purposes. The team also provided mentoring and technical assistance to other sub-Saharan countries, including Namibia and South Africa.

    Prior to working at UCSF she was an Allen Rosenfield ASPH fellow with the Epidemiology and Strategic Information Branch of the CDC's Center for Global Health, Division of Global HIV/AIDS. In this capacity, she worked in implementing a national HIV/AIDS ANC survey and assessments of the utility of routine PMTCT program data for surveillance purposes in Angola and Mozambique.
