Dr. Troy Moon is an infectious disease specialist and pediatrician, who is an established health-services researcher and educator with extensive experience conducting research in sub-Saharan Africa. Prior to joining Tulane in January 2023, Dr. Moon had six years on-the ground experience living in Mozambique (2007-2012) as the Clinical Director of a PEPFAR-funded HIV care and treatment scale-up program. Service scale-up included the conduct of numerous implementation science research evaluations for improved evidence-based practices related to pediatric and adult ART, pediatric and adult HIV-counseling and testing services, tuberculosis care and treatment, prevention of mother to child transmission (PMTCT), and cervical cancer screening. Upon return to the U.S. in January 2013, he has predominantly focused on assembling an education/training and research portfolio which emphasizes sustainable development through capacity-building and health systems strengthening in low-resource settings, especially Mozambique, Sierra Leone, and Liberia. His research focuses on infectious diseases in resource limited settings, particularly HIV and its co-infections; emerging viral infections; antimicrobial stewardship; and research ethics.
