Angela Robertson Bazzi, PhD, MPH, is an Assistant Professor of Community Health Sciences at the Boston University School of Public Health and a Boston University Peter Paul Career Development Professor. Dr. Bazzi received a PhD in Global Health from the University of California, San Diego, and an MPH from the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. She completed postdoctoral training at the Harvard School of Public Health. Prior to her research training, she was a reproductive health policy fellow at the United States Agency for International Development.
The goal of Dr. Bazzi’s research is to identify, develop, and refine strategies to improve the health of socially marginalized populations. Informed by social science perspectives, she employs quantitative and qualitative research methods to identify opportunities for prevention in diverse populations affected by HIV and substance use. Recent and ongoing research projects have documented the HIV/STI prevention needs of female and male sex workers and their partners, male couples, and people who use drugs in Mexico, Kenya, Ghana, and Boston. Dr. Bazzi is currently investigating the underutilization of antiretroviral pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) for HIV prevention among people who inject drugs. At Boston University School of Public Health, she teaches Intervention Strategies (SB821) and Women and Substance Use (MC782).
