Management Sciences for Health Welcomes Dr. Aday E. Adetosoye as Vice President, Global Health Program Delivery Group

Arlington, VA—Management Sciences for Health (MSH), a leading global health NGO, announced today the appointment of Aday E. Adetosoye, PhD, as Vice President, Global Health Program Delivery Group, the team responsible for oversight of the organization’s global portfolio of health care programs and country operations.

“I am thrilled to welcome Dr. Aday to MSH. She brings to MSH an exceptional combination of technical expertise, program management experience, a deep mission focus, and an innovative mindset across a diverse range of health care disciplines and environments. As we tackle the global health challenges that have arisen over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, I believe that Dr. Aday’s vision, experience, and expertise will be central to MSH’s continued close partnership with the countries around the world with whom we work,” said Marian W. Wentworth, MSH’s President and CEO.

Dr. Aday joins MSH with executive-level professional experience in global public health systems policy and program design, strategic planning, implementation, and evaluation activities in low-resource environments. With more than 20 years of progressive professional experience leading, managing, and supporting public health programs in the US and Africa, she brings advanced, hands-on, state-of-the-art knowledge and management experience to this position. 

Most recently, she was the Director of the Office of Global Health at the Health Resources & Services Administration of the US Department of Health and Human Services, where she served as a PEPFAR Deputy Principal and provided diplomatic and senior-level oversight of HRSA’s global health programs in 16 countries. She also provided strategic direction to the development of implementation plans for global health priorities in telehealth approaches to global health in the wake of COVID-19; bidirectional exchanges in maternal health with regard to cervical cancer in Africa and maternal mortality inequities for Black women in the United States; and mitigating infectious disease threats along the US border with Mexico. 

Prior to that, Dr. Aday served as the Executive Director of the Walter Reed Program in Tanzania, providing oversight of research and program activities within civilian and military populations in Tanzania. In that role, she harnessed the power of partnerships with host country systems to ensure equitable access to consistent quality health care services for the most underserved populations. Before her time in Tanzania, she served as a Senior Advisor with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in the Offices of HIV/AIDS and Programs, Policy, and Planning, providing expert programmatic and technical leadership, strategic planning and policy advice, guidance, and support to USAID/PEPFAR and broader health programs. She also served as Associate Director, Program Management for the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Abuja, Nigeria, overseeing program administration of all cooperative agreements under the CDC/PEPFAR program.

“I am thrilled and honored to join the MSH team at this critical time where global health is everyone’s health. I am excited to be part of the positive process of change for the underserved and look forward to serving at MSH, lifting up the health of people, one strengthened system at a time,” said Dr. Aday.

Dr. Aday holds a PhD in health policy and management from the American Heritage University of Southern California and joint master’s degrees in public health and African studies from the University of California at Los Angeles. She lives in Fairfax, VA, with her husband and two sons.
