Shrinking the Malaria Map

UCSF Global Health Group’s Malaria Elimination Initiative (MEI)

Anne Bulchis

Anne Bulchis is a Program Manager for Communications and Knowledge Management with the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) Impact Malaria Project, of which MEI is a partner. In this role, Anne oversees internal knowledge management and external strategic communications, consisting of public relations, malaria and public health technical communications, and advocacy. Impact Malaria is PMI’s global service delivery project to reduce malaria mortality and morbidity in up to 27 countries in Africa and three in Asia. The project’s primary aim is to make malaria prevention, diagnosis, and treatment more accessible and effective for those most at risk of illness and death from malaria, particularly young children and pregnant women. To achieve this, Impact Malaria is working with national malaria control programs to accelerate progress towards malaria elimination by closing gaps in malaria service delivery, unlocking the potential of key drug-based approaches, and advancing global technical learning and leadership.

Prior to joining Impact Malaria, Anne ran MEI’s communications program and led the team’s malaria elimination landscape research. She has more than a decade of public health and communications experience, including generating and translating health economics research at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), providing technical assistance at AcademyHealth to US health officials in implementing state-level health reform initiatives, and creating and evaluating health communications products at the National Cancer Institute.

Anne has an MPH in Health Policy & Management from Columbia University and a BA in Biological Sciences from Smith College.
