John Kraemer is an associate professor in the department of health systems administration at Georgetown University, a scholar at the O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law, and is affiliated with the university’s African studies program.
Trained in both public health and the law, his work focuses on the intersection of empirical evidence and public health policy. Substantively, he mainly studies women and children’s health in rural populations in sub-Saharan Africa and road safety for vulnerable road users. Methodologically, most of his work analyzes complex sample survey data. His current and past projects include work with RTI International, the Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon initiative against women’s cancers, the United Nations Special Envoy for Malaria, and Last Mile Health. At Georgetown, Kraemer has taught undergraduate epidemiology and graduate quantitative methods. He also teaches a course on the intersection of democracy, rights, and health and a seminar on the 2014-2015 West African Ebola epidemic.
Kraemer holds a B.A. in political science from Baker University, a J.D. from the Georgetown University Law Center, and an MPH from Johns Hopkins University.
