Anand Reddi is a frequent contributor to The Huffington Post as a featured blogger.[1] His articles focus on U.S. global health policy including HIV/AIDS and issues involving healthcare and academic medicine.


In 2005, Reddi was a Fulbright Scholar assisting the Sinikithemba HIV/AIDS clinic at McCord Hospital in Durban, South Africa.[2] His Fulbright research demonstrated that pediatric highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) is effective despite the challenges of a resource-limited setting.[3][4]


In 2010, Reddi published a series of articles in The Huffington Post,[5] The New York Times and The Washington Post. The articles challenged the Obama Administration’s flat-lining of global HIV treatment funds for the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).[6][7] These articles, in collaboration with others, resulted in the Obama administration’s decision to recommit $366 million for HIV/AIDS initiatives in Uganda.[8][9] For this work, Reddi received the 2012 American Medical Association (AMA) Foundation Leadership Award.
