Dr. Sten Vermund is a pediatrician and infectious disease epidemiologist focused on diseases of low and middle-income countries. His work on HIV-HPV interactions among women in Bronx methadone programs motivated a change in the 1993 CDC AIDS case surveillance definition and inspired cervical cancer screening programs launched within HIV/AIDS programs around the world.
The thrust of his research has focused on health care access, adolescent sexual and reproductive health and rights, and prevention of HIV transmission among general and key populations, including mother-to-child. Dr. Vermund has become increasingly engaged in health policy, particularly around sustainability of HIV/AIDS programs and their expansion to non-communicable diseases, pandemic respiratory disease response and prevention, and public health workforce development. Since the advent of the novel coronavirus, his work has engaged colleagues in China and Connecticut for pandemic response.
