What We Do


Peter Small



Peter Small, deputy director, is responsible for the foundation’s tuberculosis delivery program, which encompasses designing and managing our country programs in China, India, and South Africa as well as collaborations with global donors and implementers.

Peter has been at the foundation for more than a decade and during most of that time was responsible for designing and executing the foundation’s tuberculosis strategy. In 2011 he relocated to India where he established the foundation’s tuberculosis program in India, specifically focused on the ways in which innovation in tuberculosis delivery systems might accelerate the decline of tuberculosis incidence.

Peter completed his post graduate training in internal medicine at UCSF and infectious diseases at Stanford Uniiversity. Immediately prior to joining the Gates Foundation, he was on the faculty of Stanford’s Division of Infectious Disease and Geographic Medicine. Peter has published more than 150 articles including studies that helped to shape the public health response to the resurgence of tuberculosis in the USA in the 1990’s. He is a recipient of the Princess Chichibu Global TB Award for his pioneering contributions to global tuberculosis control and a fellow in the American Academy of Microbiology.
