He has expertise in enhancing private sector engagement, identifying traditional and non‐traditional outlets, and developing social marketing and behavior change communication campaigns to increase commodity availability in low‐resource settings. While serving as deputy director for the USAID/Afghanistan Communication for Behavior Change: Expanding Access to Private Sector Health Products and Services (COMPRI‐A) project, he helped the first Afghani pharmaceutical company become ISO 9001‐certified; it still supplies patients with medication.
