Professional overview

Dr. Peter Navario has extensive field experience establishing, monitoring, and evaluating HIV/AIDS treatment programs and health system capacity building across sub-Saharan Africa. He was the chair of the Botswana Ministry of Health’s National HIV/AIDS Health Professional Training Committee and lead evaluator of the World Bank’s Treatment Access Programme in Burkina Faso. As a Fellow for Global Health at the Council of Foreign Relations, he published, lectured, convened, and facilitated meetings around scaling up access to HIV/AIDS treatment with leaders from many organizations, including the Joint United Nations HIV/AIDS Program (UNAIDS). He then served as a Technical Advisor to the UNAIDS on numerous initiatives, including the the Post-2015 Development Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals, the 2011 UN General Assembly High Level Meeting on HIV/AIDS, and the UN Secretary General’s Global Strategy on Women’s and Children’s Health. 

In Ukraine, Dr. Navario researched substance use and sexual HIV risk behaviors of displaced young adults from Kiev and Donestsk regions in pre-conflict, transitions, and camp settings, in order to identify risk factors in each setting. In Kenya, he is assessing the feasibility, acceptability, and impact of pre-exposure prophylaxis on HIV risk among male sex workers.

As the Executive Director of HealthRight International, Dr. Navario partners with NYU on global health programming and research, training opportunities for future public health leaders, and thought leadership. Additionally, he is on the editorial board of the journal Global Health Governance, and has written on HIV/AIDS policy and other global health issues in various publications, including the Lancet, the Huffington Post, cfr.org, and Global Health Magazine.
