    Elizabeth Fair, PhD, MPH is an infectious disease epidemiologist with a primary appointment in the Department of Medicine, Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine and affiliated faculty appointments with the Institute for Global Health Sciences and the Curry International Tuberculosis Center.
    Dr. Fair’s research interests include tuberculosis (TB), TB/HIV, global health, and implementation/operational research. Her current work focuses on public health interventions for intensified TB case finding in high-burden settings. She is collaborating with colleagues in Mozambique and WHO to test the feasibility of a new mobile health application to improve quality and yield of TB contact investigation.
    Dr. Fair worked from 2009-2015 with the National Tuberculosis and Leprosy Program (NTLP) and National Institute of Medical Research (NIMR) in Tanzania to design and implement TB contact investigation under program conditions, and to evaluate the implementation of TB contact investigation in Dar es Salaam (NIH/NIAID K01 Mentored Research Scientist Award). Findings from this project led to implementation of TB contact investigation in Iringa, a rural district of Tanzania (NIH U01 ICIDR award), as well as programmatic scale-up TB contact investigation within the NTLP in Dar es Salaam (USAID funding).
    Recent collaborations include projects evaluating the feasibility of mobile health for implementation of TB contact investigation in Uganda and Mozambique; exploring the use of drones and a package of new technologies to find, diagnose, and treat TB in remote Madagascar; and exploring TB stigma in Bangladesh,
    Dr. Fair has consulted for the American Thoracic Society (ATS), World Health Organization (WHO), the Dutch Tuberculosis Group (KNCV), and United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
    As an educator Dr. Fair serves as Director of the PhD Program in Global Health in the UCSF Institute for Global Health Sciences, where she teaches global health research methods. Her interest in TB research and mentoring early stage investigators comes together in a newly awarded NIH/NIAID R25 award titled “TB Research and Mentorship Program (TB RAMP)” that she co-leads.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
