Wanda Jaskiewicz is a global leader with 20 years of experience in international health and development with a focus on human resources for health, family planning, maternal and child health, and HIV/AIDS. In her current position as program director for Southern Africa, Asia, and Latin America and the Caribbean, she ensures overall strategic planning, oversight, and capacity building of programs in these regions.

In her previous position on USAID’s flagship human resources for health project CapacityPlus, Jaskiewicz developed evidence-based tools to build the capacity of ministries of health and faith-based service delivery organizations to develop costed financial and non-financial incentive packages to motivate health workers to take posts in rural areas, to measure health worker productivity, and to identify interventions to address underlying causes of low productivity.

Prior to joining IntraHealth, Ms. Jaskiewicz worked as a consultant with UNICEF to provide technical assistance in developing youth-targeted training programs in sexually transmitted infections and HIV/AIDS and to design a health promotion curriculum on HIV/AIDS prevention. She holds an MPH from Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine and a BA in biology from Dartmouth College. She is fluent in Spanish.
