Nina

Hasen

Vice President, HIV and Tuberculosis

PSI Global

As Director of PSI’s HIV and TB Department, Nina works with her team to support prevention, care and treatment programs in 36 countries across the globe. She believes that PSI’s unique strength as a marketing organization and its private sector expertise makes PSI uniquely poised to address the toughest challenges in HIV and TB.

Nina comes to PSI from the US Government, where she oversaw HIV programs funded through the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). Focused on HIV prevention, testing, counseling and gender issues, Nina provided strategic guidance, policy expertise and technical oversight to a range of countries and programs.

Nina began her career in grassroots community work, first in London and then the United States, where she focused on women’s health, gender-based violence and youth issues. After discovering a passion for science, Nina pursued a PhD from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in Zoology and conducted post-doctoral work on health disparities between African American and European American women in rates of breast cancer. A fellowship with the American Association for the Advancement of Science brought Nina to Washington, DC in 2009.

When not thinking about how to solve the toughest challenges in HIV and AIDS, Nina is wondering where she will get her next delicious meal. She speaks questionable French and Italian.
