Dr. Irene Anne Jillson, Associate Professor, Georgetown University, has designed and launched courses in global health ethics, global health systems and politics, responsible science, global health research and challenges to international technology policy. She also teaches medical/healthcare ethics and healthcare research to medical and graduate nursing students. Dr. Jillson, who holds a PhD in technology policy and management from Westminster University, was the founder and President of Policy Research Incorporated, a private research firm that carried out local, national and international health and social policy research studies for more than 25 years. She has conducted extensive research and provided technical assistance and policy advice, particularly but not exclusively to countries in Latin America, the Caribbean, and the Middle East, and North Africa, addressing a wide range of health, social policy and multi-sectoral issues, including for example women’s access to healthcare, youth participation in peacebuilding, HIV/AIDS, and One Health. A hallmark of Dr. Jillson’s contributions has been the use of innovative approaches to collaborative engagement at the international, national, local and institutional levels, including the design and use of community-based participatory methods and the use of theater, music and other creative arts to engage individuals and communities to address their needs and those of others in the global community.
