Rebecca Kohler

Senior Vice President of Strategy and Development

"Every day, I focus on how to strengthen IntraHealth as an organization, how we can have more impact in the world, and how we can help countries reach their own visions for accessible high-quality health care."

As IntraHealth International’s Senior Vice President of Strategy and Development, Rebecca Kohler guides the organization toward its vision of a healthier global population by creating stronger health systems around the world.

Kohler works to expand IntraHealth’s portfolio of programs, funders, and partnerships, and leads IntraHealth’s many engagements with the community of global health and development professionals and organizations around the world that share our values and goals.

"My role is really that of a master facilitator for the organization,” she says, “ensuring that all the pieces of our work come together in a way that moves IntraHealth forward, from who we are today to who we’re working to become."

As head of the strategy and development division, Kohler oversees functions such as program development, advocacy, fundraising, private-sector partnerships, and business strategy. Her experience spans more than 20 countries across several continents, including long-term assignments in Armenia, Eritrea, Kenya, and Tanzania. She holds a master's degree in public health from the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health and a bachelor's degree from Duke University.
