“We are happy to welcome Dr. Jeremy Ross to our group,” said Annette Sohn, M.D., amfAR Vice President and Director of TREAT Asia. “His experience and skills in developing and managing HIV programs in the region will help TREAT Asia to expand and enhance its research initiatives aimed at improving the care and lives of people living with HIV.”
Before joining TREAT Asia, Dr. Ross was Senior Technical Health Specialist for the Humanitarian Accountability Partnership in Myanmar and prior to that, Associate Director, Thailand and Regional TASC 3 Programs for FHI360’s Asia Pacific Regional Office in Thailand.

“I am very excited to join the TREAT Asia team and by the prospect of working with the investigators, organizations and institutions of the TREAT Asia network,” said Dr. Ross. “I look forward to contributing to what is already an impressive and productive adult and pediatric HIV research collaboration, to its wide-ranging initiatives, and to the network’s future direction. TREAT Asia’s community, education and advocacy work also provides great opportunities to link research to key service delivery, capacity and policy issues in the region.”
