AHW Welcomes New Operations Leader


We are pleased to introduce Benjamin Link as the newest member of the Alliance for a Healthier World (AHW) team. Ben joins us in the capacity of Executive Manager, focusing his efforts on the daily operations of the Alliance. He will work closely with our existing team and faculty to maximize opportunities for collaboration across the Johns Hopkins University campus knowing, as we do, that this is the surest way to build enduring partnerships toward our shared goal of health equity.

Ben has over 15 years of experience working in both the non-profit and private sectors on initiatives related to global health and development in diverse settings across southern and eastern Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, and Navajo Nation. Most recently, he worked with the AMPATH consortium based in Eldoret, Kenya and before that served as Chief of Staff and Director of Board Relations at the non profit organization Partners In Health.

The conceptual thread running through Ben's global health delivery experience is the notion that many of the very same public sector healthcare delivery systems currently unable to deliver high quality, accessible care to the communities they serve represent the greatest opportunity for transformation to accomplish precisely this goal.

Please join us in welcoming Ben to our community and feel free to reach out to him at his contact details included below. He'll be in touch with key representatives from each division during the weeks and months ahead to learn about your work, your ideas and  aspirations for the Alliance for a Healthier World.
