Most of Madagascar’s 25 million people lack access to even the most basic healthcare. Pivot is building a district-level health care system designed to scale up through the country’s Ministry of Health. Their special sauce is continual improvement through well-designed data systems. They have remarkable health outcomes to show for it.

Matt is trained in global health and epidemiology, and his work centers on understanding the ecology of poverty. He is an Assistant Professor in Global Health at Harvard Medical School and holds PhDs in both Economics and Infectious Disease Ecology from Georgia University. Prior to founding Pivot, he lived in Rwanda working with Partners in Health for five years.
