Cristina Munk is a Research Assistant supporting Dr. Stephen Resch with the EPIC project on immunization costing and financing, and other projects. Prior to joining HSPH, Cristina worked on HIV domestically and globally—most recently with the Boston Public Health Commission and earlier with the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention in Ethiopia. In Ethiopia, she worked closely with the Ministry of Health to launch the country’s first national prevalence survey of populations at high risk for acquiring HIV. During this time, she also collaborated with Dr. Resch in calibrating a maternal health policy model to the Ethiopian context. During her Master’s of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University, she focused on international health systems and maternal & newborn health, and evaluated the scale-up of community-based newborn health programs in Malawi and India. She received her Bachelor’s of Science in entomology from Cornell University, conducting malaria research in Ghana on bed net distribution and on mosquito behavior in Tanzania.
