The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health invites applications for the Director of the William H. Gates Sr. Institute for Population and Reproductive Health, formerly the Bill & Melinda Gates Institute for Population and Reproductive Health.
The Institute, founded in 1999 with the mission of “Scholarship and Science for Social Change,” is a trailblazer for innovation in the field of family planning, reproductive health, and population dynamics. The Institute uses transformative approaches to accelerate locally led progress in sexual and reproductive health and rights, population dynamics, gender equity, and equitable development. The Institute is based at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in the Department of Population, Family and Reproductive Health (PFRH). The Institute, Department and School support a diverse and inclusive community.
William H. Gates Sr. was a philanthropist, lawyer, and humanitarian who championed causes related to global equity and campaigns to address vaccine- preventable diseases, reduce infant mortality, promote reproductive health, and build schools. His investment in the vision that created the Bill & Melinda Gates Institute for Population and Reproductive Health (now William H. Gates Sr. Institute), followed by additional investments from the Gates Foundation and other philanthropic organizations and individuals, has allowed members of the Institute to engage in groundbreaking research, lead innovative programs, and make “positive disruptions” to increase family planning access and improve reproductive health for all individuals, communities, and countries across the world.
