    Kathryn Bradford Vosburg is a published health policy and health systems professional. Vosburg is supporting the Institute for Global Health Science’s Decolonizing Global Health strategy and was previously the Associate Director of UCSF’s Pandemic Response Initiative.

    The Pandemic Response Initiative focuses on supporting low- and middle-income countries’ response to the pandemic. Before joining UCSF, Vosburg worked at the Public Health and Emergency Medical Services department at the County of San Mateo. She spearheaded a number of management and systems strengthening projects, from evaluating a preventive Hepatitis A campaign with homeless populations, to supporting the public health clinics analytics, to facilitating racial equity trainings and implementing a racial equity strategy for San Mateo County's health system (including infusing an equity lens into the County’s COVID-19 response). Prior to working in County Health, Kathryn led Clinton Health Access Initiative’s (CHAI) human resources for health (HRH) program in Lusaka, Zambia for five years before joining the global HRH team to support Tanzania, Liberia and Uganda’s health workforce initiatives, specifically nationalizing and launching community health worker strategies. Additionally, Vosburg worked with Last Mile Health to build their clinical and community workforce post-ebola. Vosburg has authored several academic papers with topics ranging from health workforce policy interventions to financing of primary health programs in sub-Saharan Africa. Vosburg serves on the board of an NGO in Zambia which supports and rehabilitates adolescent girls living on the streets of Zambia’s capital city.
