With extensive experience in HIV specialty care and the HIV pharmaceutical industry, Dr. Michael Aboud brings invaluable skills and background to ViiV Healthcare, with areas of expertise including HIV clinical practice, medical strategy, data generation, and clinical development. His passion for improving HIV care and treatment began during his medical school training in Sierra Leone, where he witnessed the outcome of HIV, opportunistic infections, and limited or no access to antiviral therapies. This exposure left a lasting impression that strongly influenced his career path. Michael’s passion to improve HIV outcomes coupled with a desire to be at the forefront of HIV research and innovation led him to ViiV, where he now plays a key role in improving HIV care and treatment worldwide using novel therapies.

Prior to ViiV, Michael consulted for five years as Honorary HIV Consultant at Barts and The London NHS Trust where, with his high level of expertise in HIV, he provided inpatient care for those who were sickest or had complicating opportunistic infections. During this time, he also held Medical Lead positions at Janssen Therapeutics and Johnson & Johnson, managing medical strategy for HIV investigational drug programs in the UK and Ireland, including strategy for investigator- sponsored studies and data generation.


Michael obtained his medical degree in 1999 from the University of Sierra Leone and is a member of the Royal College of Physicians, London. He holds a Diploma from the School of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene in Liverpool, and has earned additional specialty diplomas focused on HIV, including Diploma in HIV, Diploma in Genitourinary Medicine, and Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare Diploma.
