Caitlyn Bradburn

Welcome! My name is Caitlyn Bradburn and I am a training and curriculum design consultant in the public and global health spheres. Please contact me to explore ways we can work together.

I love creating interactive, engaging, and fun trainings for adult learners in the public and global health fields. I’m an enthusiastic trainer and instructor of adult learners with varying education and literacy levels.  My experience ranges from creating trainings for clinicians and community health workers, to field and management staff.

I have extensive experience, to the tune of 15+ years, in training program design, development, and facilitation. My areas of expertise include curriculum writing, training of trainers, and development of materials to support learning including job-aids, reference tools, and decision-making guides. I am an adept collaborator with cross-functional teams of global stakeholders, program managers, subject matter experts, instructional designers, and web programmers to develop high-quality, high-impact training materials for learners.

I am particularly passionate about Community Health Worker programs,  HIV prevention and treatment efforts, reproductive health, and leadership and capacity building.

Work Samples + Publication

I worked with Partners In Health to develop a system of mental health care across four cadres of healthcare workers in Haiti. The earthquake in Haiti made evident that long-term, durable mental health care was severely needed. I worked to develop several of these trainings in English and in French.

I worked with ICAP at Columbia University to develop training materials on the introduction of Dolutegravir for the treatment of HIV as a part of the OPTIMIZE project.  The trainings are for healthcare workers in PEPFAR supported countries across Africa.

My paper, Risky Business: Condom Failure as Experienced by Female Sex Workers in Mombassa Kenya was published in the Journal of Culture, Health & Sexuality in September, 2016. 

I was a supporting author on a paper called Implementation of the Navajo fruit and vegetable prescription programme to improve access to healthy foods in a rural food desert which was published in August 2020 in the Journal of Public Health Nutrition.
