Martin Brockerhoff has worked in the health and organizational development fields for nearly 25 years, as an employee of government and non-profit and private organizations. At the USAID Office of Population, he oversaw surveys that provided government agencies with information to deliver reproductive health services in developing countries. At the Population Council, Martin’s research focused on migrant communities in urban areas, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa, documenting their success in lowering maternal and child mortality as they adapted to urban ways of life. His work with multi-national companies at Sirota Consulting aimed at making expatriate managers more aware of concerns voiced by local workers, such as having a safe workplace, being treated as partners, and having trusting relationships with their supervisors. Martin is currently conducting institutional research at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.
Martin has worked in eight developing countries and been a consultant for international organizations and private companies on urban health, statistics, management training, and data collection systems. He is an active member of several professional organizations including the American Public Health Association, the American Sociological Association, and the Society for Industrial/Organizational Psychology. Martin holds a Ph.D. in Sociology from Brown University, an M.A. in International and Public Affairs from Columbia University, and a B.A. in Political Science from the State University of New York.
Martin is excited about bringing his experience in international public health and his knowledge of companies’ strategies to improve community health to ACCESS Partnerships.
