Jennifer Bryce is a Senior Scientist at the Institute for International Programs (IIP) of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. She has extensive experience in the evaluation of maternal, newborn and child health programs in low- and middle-income countries, gained through work with the US Centers for Disease Control, the World Health Organization and several universities. Dr. Bryce is currently involved in effectiveness evaluations of large-scale programs, predominantly in sub-Saharan Africa, and in the development and testing of methods to measure under-five mortality in “real-time”. She is co-chair of the Coverage Technical Working Group for Countdown to 2015 in Maternal, Newborn and Child Health and coordinates work on improving coverage measurement for the Child Health Epidemiology Reference Group. A consistent theme in Dr. Bryce’s work is building capacity for program evaluation and the use of evidence to improve public health programs, both in countries and among their partners at all levels.
