On November 2nd, Dr. Jen Kate joined the USC Institute on Inequalities in Global Health for the final Virtual Lecture Series Event of the fall semester titled, “What Will it Take to Distribute a COVID-19 Vaccine in the U.S?”
Dr. Jen Kates is the Senior Vice President and Director of Global Health & HIV Policy Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation and oversees KFF’s policy analysis and research focused on the U.S. government’s role in global health and on the global and domestic HIV
epidemics. Widely regarded as an expert in the field, she regularly publishes and presents on global health and HIV policy issues and is particularly known for her work analyzing donor government investments in global health; assessing and mapping the U.S. government’s global health architecture, programs, and funding; and tracking and analyzing major U.S. HIV programs and financing, and key trends in the HIV epidemic, an area she has been working in for close to thirty years.
As voting commences for the 2020 Presidential election, Dr. Kates joined us to shed light on the key challenges to distribution and administration of COVID vaccines to people across the US, and what a change in government could potentially mean for curtailing the spread of COVID-19.
