Jacob Bor, ScD, SM, is Assistant Professor and Peter T. Paul Career Development Professor in the Departments of Global Health (primary) and Epidemiology. His research applies the analytical tools of economics to the study of population health, with a focus on HIV treatment and prevention in southern Africa. Current research interests include economic spillover effects of HIV treatment on patients, households, and communities; decision-making in HIV-endemic risk environments; population health impacts of social policy; and causal inference in public health research. His work has been published in Science, Lancet, PLOS Medicine, and other journals. Prior to his graduate training at Harvard School of Public Health, Dr. Bor worked with an HIV-prevention NGO in Botswana, Lesotho, and South Africa. He is a faculty affiliate of BU's Global Development Policy Center, a Junior Faculty Fellow at BU's Hariri Institute for Computational Science, an affiliate of the Africa Health Research Institute (www.africacentre.ac.za), and Senior Research at the Health Economics and Epidemiology Research Office (www.heroza.org) in South Africa.
