Suzanne Maman is associate dean for global health in the Gillings School of Global Public Health and associate director of the Institute. A professor of health behavior, she co-leads the Master of Public Health Program’s global health concentration, which she helped to develop. She also serves as the UNC faculty director at the Duke-UNC Rotary Peace Center. A national and international leader in global health research, practice and education, Maman’s work for the past 20 years has focused on the intersection of intimate partner violence and HIV/AIDS. Her work in Tanzania and South Africa has demonstrated how violence increases women’s risks for HIV infection, and how an HIV diagnosis may affect women’s experiences with violence. Programs she has developed, implemented and evaluated with global colleagues and community partners have helped mitigate women’s risks from both violence and HIV/AIDS.
