Dr. Brian Robie, who is retired from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), has a strong background in global public health program systems strengthening, particularly in Process Improvement (PI) implementation. He taught PI to faculty from developing countries participating in CDC’s former Management for International Public Health (MIPH) course and also provided technical assistance to developing countries implementing PI programs. That work included facilitating courses, mentoring in-country facilitators learning to conduct the course, and supervising PI projects at clinics, hospitals and other public health facilities. Dr. Robie has considerable hands-on management experience as Deputy Branch Chief in CDC’s Sustainable Management Development Program, Public Health Systems Strengthening Branch and Global Noncommunicable Disease Branch. He also served on the Human Resources for Health (HRH) Technical Working Group at the Office of the Global AIDS Coordinator (OGAC) to review the CDC PEPFAR headquarters operating plan and country operating plans from a human capacity development standpoint, thus providing him a big picture perspective on management capacity building in developing countries.
