She is the principal investigator of multiple USAID-, NIH-, and foundation-supported studies and evaluations in South Africa and has worked extensively in Zambia and Kenya. She is also the author of policy and review papers on the business response to AIDS, the rationing of antiretroviral therapy, and the retention of patients in HIV/AIDS care and treatment programs. Her current projects include AMBIT, EVIDENCE, MATI, and EQUIP, all described on the BUSPH website. Professor Rosen’s technical training is in policy analysis and applied economics.
