A medical doctor and public health specialist, Fabio is responsible for the World Health Organization’s tuberculosis control program in China - which has the largest single country burden of multidrug-resistant TB. He began his career with the WHO in 2001 in the Stop TB Department, where he helped develop policies to provide diagnosis and care to those co-infected with both TB and HIV in low and middle-income countries. Fabio also collaborates with the Aspen Institute on initiatives aimed at alleviating brain drain in Italy, a phenomenon in which young talented Italians leave the country in search of better opportunities. He holds an M.D. from the University of Padua and a post-graduate degree in Infectious Diseases and Tropical Medicine.
