    Collapse Overview
    Allison Tatarsky is the Director of the Malaria Elimination Initiative (MEI) at the University of California, San Francisco. Allison has nearly 15 years of experience working alongside and in service of ministries of health on malaria elimination strategy, policy, program implementation, and operational research. During her tenure with the MEI, Allison established the MEI’s vector control and surveillance portfolio of work, including research on innovative vector control tools and entomological surveillance strengthening through technical assistance, capacity development, and decision-tool deployment. As a member of the MEI’s leadership team, Allison has worked to expand partnerships and shape the MEI’s strategy, including the MEI’s approach to targeting and tailoring of malaria elimination approaches, supporting subnational-level problem-solving and impact.

    Prior to joining the MEI, Allison worked with the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) in southern Africa on regional and country malaria elimination efforts, and also in Boston where she coordinated CHAI’s HIV, TB, and Health Financing efforts across the organization. In these earlier roles, Allison led various projects including those on mass mosquito net distribution, elimination advocacy, and mobile health for malaria diagnosis and surveillance; and contributed to national malaria elimination strategic plans, national guidelines, and program evaluations.
