Lawrence Long (MCom, PhD) is a health economist and public health policy researcher. He is a Research Assistant Professor at the Boston University School of Public Health and holds a joint appointment at the University of Witwatersrand (Johannesburg, South Africa). He has more than 14 years of experience conducting applied research on the economic impact of HIV, tuberculosis and associated conditions within South Africa and sub-Saharan Africa. Prior to his appointment at Boston University he led a growing South African research group as the deputy director and has extensive experience in organizational management, leadership and grant management. Lawrence did his undergraduate degree in business science with a specialization in economics and finance and then went on to focus on economics and its application to public health in his graduate studies. Currently he is a co-PI of a number of HIV projects under a multi-year USAID co-operative agreement in South Africa and a co-investigator on a Gates award to evaluate the roll out of differentiated HIV service delivery in selected countries in Africa. In addition to this he is expanding his work to start looking at HIV prevention, in particular amongst key populations in resource limited settings.
