About Khairul A Siddiqi

Dr. Khairul A Siddiqi, a health services researcher, has been working in the public health sector for more than five years in both developed and resource-poor health care settings. His current research focus is to assess the health care services, policies, and programs using mixed-method (quantitative and qualitative approaches) with a view to increasing health care access and improving the quality of life of socially disadvantaged people, such as Medicaid beneficiaries, people living with HIV, older people with multimorbidity. He is currently working with different electronic health records (EHRs) and state and national databases to leverage the best use of secondary data in ending the HIV epidemic in Florida and the United States. His commitment to public health is studying how care is delivered, identify opportunities for care improvement, and implement new approaches for organizing and delivering health services.
