Big Idea: 

Madagascar’s health system is a shambles. Pivot is building a new model for district-level health care from the ground up that is designed to be applied at scale throughout the country. Built around rigorous data systems, and combining the best of community health systems worldwide, PIVOT’s solution could provide a revolution in the quality of health care in rural Madagascar and beyond.

Matt is trained in global health and epidemiology, and his work centers on understanding the ecology of poverty. He is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Global Health and Social Medicine at Harvard Medical School. Prior to founding Pivot and teaching at Harvard, he lived and worked with Partners in Health in Rwanda for five years. Matt holds PhDs in both Economics and Infectious Disease Ecology from the University of Georgia.
