Eve Mokotoff is the Managing Director of HIV Counts. Ms. Mokotoff is widely recognized as a national expert on HIV surveillance. She has authored three book chapters on HIV surveillance methods and consults on the topic nationally and internationally. Prior to founding this firm she started the AIDS Surveillance Program in Detroit for the State of Michigan in 1986. Since then the Michigan program grew to include over 25 staff in two cities who conduct HIV surveillance, HIV incidence and resistance surveillance as well as electronic laboratory reporting and behavioral and clinical surveillance. The Michigan program gained a reputation for being one of the best in the country and is looked to for mentoring staff in other states. After almost 27 years she left the State of Michigan to found HIV Counts. In recognition of the work she does with both UM SPH faculty and students she was appointed adjunct lecturer in 2006.

Research Interests & Projects
Ms. Mokotoff's chief interests are in the area of 1) efficiently collecting relevant surveillance data and 2) making HIV surveillance data useful to and used by community organizations as well as programs directed at prevention of HIV transmission as well as care of persons living with HIV/AIDS. In 2003 she organized the HIV Surveillance Coordinators in the rest of the United States into a Workgroup within the national Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE) and continues to develop national leadership among HIV Surveillance Coordinators. Current activities include co-authoring an MMWR article changing the case definition and classification system for HIV infection and providing technical assistance to the Stigma Index and "Data to Care" - Using HIV Surveillance Data for Linkage and Re-engagement to Care and consulting with CDC, John Snow, Inc., CSTE and NASTAD (National Alliance of State and Territorial AIDS Directors) to further HIV surveillance nationally and internationally. She is a reviewer for several journals including Public Health Reports, JAMA and the American Journal of Preventive Medicine. She has published in numerous journals and presented to groups as varied as national CDC expert consultations, prevention planning councils, community members and the National Medical Association.
