2020 Leadership Journey Project: Fortify my team’s ability at USAID to unlock the potential of innovation in global health while sustaining each other during a crisis.
Amy Lin leads the USAID Center for Innovation and Impact (CII), which applies market-based approaches like market shaping, innovative financing, and enabling innovation to global health challenges. Previously, Amy was based in Mumbai with Monitor Inclusive Markets, where she led teams developing social enterprise models to meet needs in low-resource settings, such as for clean drinking water in slums. Prior to this role, she served as the HIV/AIDS Program Director for the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) in Liberia. Before CHAI, Amy was at the World Bank’s Development Marketplace, which funds new approaches to serving the poor. Amy also worked with TechnoServe in Peru, creating growth strategies for semi-rural microbusinesses.
