Scott Geibel is a senior associate based in the Population Council’s Washington, DC office. For over twenty years he has supported, designed, implemented, and documented HIV research and surveillance activities in low-resource settings worldwide. He was based in the Council’s Kenya and Zambia offices for over a decade, where his work contributed to increasing knowledge and awareness of the HIV epidemic among key and vulnerable populations in Africa, including men who have sex with men, male and female sex workers, and people who inject drugs. His other areas of research include assessing stigma reduction interventions in health care settings and measuring the impact of community-focused interventions on antiretroviral program retention and viral suppression.
Currently, Geibel is the Director of Project SOAR, USAID’s flagship HIV operations research project, where he oversees the development, management, and dissemination of a large portfolio of implementation science studies and activities conducted by the Population Council and consortium partners.
