About Me   About Me
Joya is a public health and development professional with 11 years of experience in reproductive, maternal child health, HIV, gender-based violence and youth leadership. She is currently the Global Health Director at a small, boutique public health consulting firm, Be the Change Group.

Joya began her career in public health as a consultant to the United Nations Population Fund. With the support of the UN, she started a non-profit organization, the Global youth Coalition on HIV/AIDS (GYCA), a youth-led global network of over 8,000 young people fighting the spread of HIV/AIDS in 173 countries worldwide, on which she recently gave a TED talk.

Joya received a Master of Science in Global Health and Population from the Harvard School of Public Health, where she conducted a quantitative study on child health in an urban slum in Mumbai, India, and was a teaching assistant for a course on health reform in Santiago, Chile.

She then worked for CDC South Africa, as PEPFAR’s Gender Specialist, where she managed a portfolio of grantees, conducted a nation-wide assessment of the US Government’s $20 million investments in gender-based violence, worked on CDC's medical male circumcision for HIV prevention program and publishing six articles in peer-reviewed, scientific journals.

Most recently, Joya was a Manager at GBCHealth (formerly the Global Business Coalition on AIDS, TB and Malaria), an NGO dedicated to private sector engagement on global health issues, where she managed the Healthy Women, Healthy Economies initiative and the HIV portfolio.

Joya has long and short-term field experience in 14 countries is fluent in Spanish, Bengali and English.
