Peter Ehrenkranz

Deputy Director, HIV

Dr. Peter Ehrenkranz focuses on improving access to high-quality HIV care that better serves the needs of people living with HIV and reduces unnecessary burdens on the health system.

From 2015 to 2021, Peter was the senior program officer for HIV treatment at the foundation. From 2009 to 2014, he worked in Eswatini (formerly Swaziland) under the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, first as the care and treatment lead and later as the country director. Earlier, he spent two years as the medical director of the Clinton Health Access Initiative’s programs in Liberia, where he was embedded in the Ministry of Health as senior advisor to the National AIDS Control and the National Tuberculosis Control programs.

Peter earned an undergraduate degree from Yale University and medical and public health degrees from Emory University, and he both trained in internal medicine and completed the Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholars Program at the University of Pennsylvania.

In addition to his HIV responsibilities, Peter has led the foundation’s support for the local COVID-19 response in Seattle / King County and Washington State.
