Dr. Koki Agarwal is an internationally recognized expert in safe motherhood, reproductive health, and family planning policies and programs, as well as promoting policy dialogue and advocacy for policy reform. She has more than 25 years of service delivery experience in reproductive health, family planning, and maternal health, and for over two decades has led, managed, and implemented large-scale USAID-funded global health projects.
Since June 2014, Dr. Agarwal had directed USAID’s flagship Maternal and Child Survival Program (MCSP), which works in 24 USAID priority countries and is the principal follow-on to the Maternal and Child Health Integrated Program (MCHIP). She also remains responsible for the overall management and strategic and technical integrity of MCHIP—a $600 million flagship USAID program, awarded to Jhpiego and partners in 2008—which focuses on reducing maternal, neonatal and child mortality and accelerating progress toward achieving Millennium Development Goals 4 and 5.

Prior to both programs, Dr. Agarwal led the ACCESS Program, a USAID-funded maternal and newborn health program led by Jhpiego, and was Deputy of the POLICY Project through the Futures Group. She also served as chair of the Project’s maternal health activities and Director of the Center for International Health.
