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!)
