- TAPS Fellow
Sanjiv Baxi, MD, MS, completed his MD and MS in clinical research at the University of Michigan and his internal medicine residency and infectious diseases fellowship at UCSF. While in medical school, his research focused on developed world infectious diseases issues, but it was in residency where he transitioned to health in marginalized populations as a global health clinical scholar. During this time, he worked on assessing the impact of indoor residual spraying of insecticide on slide positivity rate of malaria. As a TAPS fellow, Sanjiv is investigating ARV measures of adherence in a number of large cohorts (IAVI, WIHS, HPTN) in addition to understanding optimal financial strategies for HIV and TB control and prevention on multiple levels (local to international). He is also interested in investigating the potential long-term organ effects of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). Sanjiv is currently pursuing a Masters in public health at UC Berkeley and plans to continue to take advanced courses in cost assessment for HIV prevention strategies.
