Kavita Singh
Senior Research Scientist

I am an Epidemiologist by training and Senior Research Scientist at the Public Health Foundation of India. I am also a Visiting Scholar at the Asia Pacific Research Centre at the Stanford University, USA and Adjunct Faculty at the Hubert Department of Global Health at Emory University, USA. I have over 10 years of research experience in clinical trials, implementation science and economic evaluations. My research work primarily focuses on evaluating the long-term effectiveness, cost-effectiveness, and process evaluation of a multifaceted quality improvement intervention among poorly controlled type 2 diabetes patients in South Asia. In 2019, I am the first Indian to receive the NIH Emerging Global Leader Award (K43 grant, 2019-2024), to conduct a project that aims to develop and test the feasibility/effectiveness of a collaborative quality improvement strategy for the secondary prevention cardiovascular diseases in India.
