PATH is pleased to announce the promotion of Kammerle Schneider to director of the Malaria and Neglected Tropical Disease (NTD) programs. Known as ‘Kamm’ around the office, she will also lead the Center for Malaria Control and Elimination. A thought leader and catalyst for success, Kamm has decades of experience developing and leading robust global health programs.
“I am thrilled to welcome Kamm Schneider to her new position as director of the Malaria and NTD programs at PATH,” said previous director, Dr. Larry Slutsker. “Her impressive skills in program planning and design, strong technical expertise, and extensive experience in partnerships and policy will help to take PATH to the next level in the coming years.”
Over the past 8 years Kamm has worked within PATH’s malaria portfolio supporting public policy efforts, and most recently serving as deputy director for PATH’s Malaria Control and Elimination Partnership in Africa. In this role she led analytical teams responsible for accelerating adoption of new tools and approaches for reducing and ultimately eliminating the burden of malaria into national and global strategies and guidance, including policy analysis, data use and visualization, health economics, and mathematical modeling.
Kamm’s career in global health started in 2001 as a Peace Corps volunteer in Guatemala. Since then, Kamm has held roles with the United States Agency for International Development, Council on Foreign Relations, and the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative before joining PATH in 2011.
Kamm is currently a PhD candidate at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and holds degrees from the Colombia University School of International and Public Affairs, as well as the University of Washington Jackson School of International Studies.
