Tiff Jiang is a first-year MPP student at the Jackson School of Global Affairs focused on global health policy. To her, the field is an exciting opportunity to understand a society’s history, culture, and economics to influence health outcomes–understanding health as inextricable from financial stability, education, safety, and equity. Before coming to Yale, Tiff worked at Palladium International, an implementer for the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), for three years. There, she developed a health and workforce program for women in the Philippines, supported a Kenyan team to provide technical health financing assistance to the government, and wrote for several critical business proposals. Separately, Tiff also created the business plan for a medical device startup and published a paper on the key business elements for launching a device in low-and-middle income countries. Her strengths lie in creative thinking and building relationships across cultures to develop customized solutions for each context, developed over time working in Uganda, Vietnam, South Africa, Argentina, and the Philippines. At Yale, Tiff plans to deepen her quantitative and business management skillsets to further evidence-based policy while re-imagining ways to finance global health initiatives through public-private partnership. Her ultimate goal is to facilitate true sustainability and localization in the global health sector. She graduated from Duke University in 2020 with degrees in public policy and global health and a minor in economics.
