Katherine DeMarco is Director of Global Operations at the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI). She joined CHAI as a volunteer in 2008 helping the Liberia Ministry of Health draft a Global Fund HIV grant. She later joined the team full-time as the HIV Program Manager supporting grant execution to scale HIV care and treatment across the country and build ministry of health management capacity. As the Liberia country office expanded into areas of maternal and neonatal health, human resources for health, labs and supply chain, Ms. DeMarco moved into the role of Deputy Country Director. After her time in Liberia, she joined the Institutional Donor Relations team. In that role she has supported various global and country teams with their fundraising and donor compliance needs along with coordinating capacity assessments from our donors.
Prior to joining CHAI, Ms. DeMarco worked for the American Red Cross focusing on hurricane disaster preparedness and response. She then served as a Peace Corps volunteer in the same focus area in the Caribbean. She then worked for a variety of NGOs concentrating on economic development projects in Africa and the Caribbean.
Ms. DeMarco holds a Bachelor of Arts and Master’s in Public Health from Tulane University.
