Kalpana Sabapathy is a clinical epidemiologist and Assistant Professor at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and is Trial Co-ordination Associate on the HPTN-071/PopART (HIV Prevention Trials Network 071 / Population Effects of Antiretroviral Treatment to Reduce Transmission) Trial. PopART is a 3 arm cluster randomised trial involving 21 communities in Zambia and South Africa which is examining the potential of combination prevention including immediate ART for all HIV-infected individuals, to reduce HIV incidence at a population level.

Her professional experience over the last 14 years has included working in the National Health Service in the UK, and with Medecins Sans Frontieres in a number of resource-limited settings in Asia and Africa to improve access to HIV care and treatment. Her research interests as an epidemiologist focuses on optimising the cascade of care to ensure timely linkage and initiation of anti-retroviral treatment and sustained engagement with care for HIV-infected individuals across population sub-groups.
