Career Summary

Biography

David Durrheim, MBChB, DrPH, DCH, DTM&H, MPH&TM, FACTM, FAFPHM, is the Director of Health Protection, Hunter New England Health, New South Wales, Australia, Conjoint Professor of Public Health Medicine at the University of Newcastle, Australia and Adjunct Professor of Public Health and Tropical Medicine at James Cook University, Queensland, Australia.

He has an established track record in conducting public research that has an operational focus and is translational in nature. His ability to use operational research findings to assist local public health programs to improve their surveillance and service delivery, particularly in challenging under-resourced environments, has resulted in a number of awards and international recognition. He has been instrumental in developing novel surveillance systems to detect and facilitate response to emerging infectious disease risks. Professor Durrheim is an outspoken advocate for equitable global access to effective public health measures, particularly immunization.

In the past decade he has served as an expert adviser and consultant to a number of World Health Organization (WHO), regional and national health programmes in the African and Pacific Regions. He also served as the Director of a World Health Organization Collaborating Centre in Vectorborne Diseases.

Professor Durrheim's research interests include novel infectious disease surveillance methods, control of zoonotic diseases and strategies for reducing inequity in public health service delivery. He has over 200 peer-reviewed publications, and has published several scientific monographs and chapters in leading public health texts.
