John Caldwell Chair

Emeritus Professor John Charles Caldwell AO, better known as Jack to his colleagues, was Head of the Department of Demography at The Australian National University for 20 years before taking on the Associate Directorship at Centre at the National Centre for Epidemiology & Population Health (NCEPH) in 1988. Since his retirement in 1993, Jack has been a Visiting Fellow at the Australian Demographic & Social Research Institute (ADSRI) at ANU.

The John C Caldwell Chair in Population, Health & Development was established in 1998 to honour the contribution of Jack, who is cited by the United Nations as “one of the most influential and prolific scientist in the field of population…his work to frame the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Africa as a demographic, epidemiological and socio-cultural phenomenon is unparalleled."
