Dr. Justine A. Kavle, earned her Ph.D. in Human Nutrition and a Master’s in Public Health from Johns Hopkins University, Bloomberg School of Public Health. As the founder of Kavle Consulting LLC, Dr. Kavle is well known for her strategic and forward-thinking approach to designing, building and growing country programs to strengthen the delivery of integrated nutrition-health interventions as part of quality community and facility-based programming for over 15 years.

Dr. Kavle has built the capacity of teams both in low and middle-income countries and in Washington D.C., by developing programmatic and social behavior change approaches and tools with United States Agency for International Development (USAID) funded global health projects. She has led numerous implementation science studies and extensively published on the process (i.e. successes and challenges) and scale-up of nutrition-health program implementation.

In partnership with USAID and Maternal and Child Survival Program (MCSP) and country experts, she pioneered a journal supplement compendium featuring 14 country experiences on “how to” strengthen nutrition within health systems, including the areas of maternal, newborn and child health and family planning. In addition, Dr. Kavle has been active in the academic community, as a lecturer at the George Washington University, Milken School of Public Health with joint appointments in Global Health and Prevention and Community Health. As a first generation Asian-American Pacific Islander (AAPI), Dr. Kavle is passionate about championing and mentoring  local leaders and nutritionists from low and middle-income countries as well as fellow Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) public health  practitioners.


Kavle Consulting, LLC exists to help countries, organizations, and people thrive by narrowing the gap between humanity’s most pressing needs and practical solutions that work.
