Harvard Department of Global Health & Social Medicine

Dr. Bukhman is an expert on strategic planning for non-communicable disease control in populations fighting against extreme poverty. His research focuses on the political and historical context of interventions in this area, as well the evaluation of programmatic outcomes.

Dr. Bukhman is the senior technical advisor on non-communicable disease for the Ministry of Health of Rwanda. In this capacity, he is working closely with colleagues in the Rwandan government to integrate services for the long tail of endemic non-communicable diseases (such as rheumatic heart disease, epilepsy, cervical cancer, and Burkitt’s lymphoma) into the process of health system strengthening. As part of this effort, Dr. Bukhman is developing a strategic planning framework with more general application in countries engaging in similar efforts. Dr. Bukhman is also an advisor to the Global Taskforce on Expanded Access to Cancer Care and Control in Developing Countries.
