Senior Vice President

Martin Vaessen leads ICF International's international health and development work related to survey research, monitoring and evaluation, analysis, and technical assistance involving demographic, health, and child labor issues. He is a demographer and survey specialist with more than 35 years of experience providing technical assistance in all phases of survey implementation in developing countries.

He was instrumental in achieving the incorporation of HIV testing in Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS), an innovation that has borne significant fruit and that led to a downward revision of the estimated number of people infected with HIV by about 7 million cases in 2007.
