Nancy Scott, DrPH, MPH is an Assistant Professor of Global Health at the Boston University School of Public Health and a faculty member of the Center for Global Health and Development (CGHD). She has over 12 years of experience in global public health program design, implementation and mixed-method process and impact evaluation. Her research interests lie in evaluating public health programs and translating that evidence into programmatic and policy relevant products in the areas of maternal and child health, prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT) and social support for orphans and vulnerable children (OVC). Dr. Scott teaches a course in monitoring and evaluating global public health programs that is grounded in the realities of implementing and evaluating complex programs in extremely resource-constrained environments and teaches similar short courses in evaluation for public health practitioners in South Africa and Tanzania. She serves as the head of the monitoring and evaluation emphasis area for the Global Health concentration. She spent five years resident in Zambia managing the CGHD’s research and service delivery portfolio and continues her work throughout sub-Saharan Africa primarily in Ethiopia, Namibia, South Africa, and Zambia.
