A Public Health Pioneer

Henry Mosley may not be a household name in public health—but he should be.

Mosley’s career began in 1965 when he was appointed head of epidemiology at the Pakistan-SEATO Cholera Research Lab. Since then, his work with demographic data has helped inform countless initiatives, from family planning to disaster recovery. 

In his storied career, Mosley:

  • Helped implement a culturally sensitive family planning program in India
  • Coordinated an online certificate training that eventually inspired the launch of the world’s first online MPH 
  • Helped establish the Bill & Melinda Gates Institute for Population and Reproductive Health (celebrating its 20th anniversary tonight!)

The Quote: “I like to start new things.”
