Background & Bio
Terrance E. Moore is the Chief Executive Officer at AMCHP and is responsible for building on and preserving AMCHP’s mission of protecting and promoting women, children, youth, families, and communities.

Mr. Moore maintains an unwavering commitment to social justice, human rights, and dismantling anti-racism and structural inequality in public policy. Throughout his career, he has focused on managing the nexus between organizational management and human rights advocacy for racial, sexual orientation, and gender equality while serving both the political and non-profit spheres in progressive leadership capacities. He has excelled in working with partners, formulating advocacy strategies on key issues in health, and maintaining a superior understanding of the U.S. Congress, federal agencies, and strategic partnerships. 

Before joining AMCHP, Mr. Moore worked for more than 15 years at NASTAD. As Acting Executive Director, he served as a transformative agent fostering strong federal partnerships, business development, and policy advocacy while managing domestic and international programs in Ethiopia, Haiti, Jamaica, and South Africa. Prior to this role, he served as Deputy Executive Director, where he influenced substantial organizational growth through a strategic planning process that resulted in the first-ever expansion of NASTAD’s membership; spearheaded the domestic programs’ portfolio to drive initiatives in HIV healthcare and prevention and health equity; and created and led a Health Resource and Service Administration-funded ($5 million) initiative to assess the HIV care needs of Black gay men and other men who have sex with men (MSM).

Mr. Moore received his Bachelor of Arts from Howard University in Political Science and a Master of Arts in Human Rights Studies from Columbia University. He has also participated as a Fellow for Racial and Gender Justice in the HIV/AIDS Movement from the Rockwood Leadership Institute. 

My Current Work
As Chief Executive Officer, Moore will continue to build on and preserve AMCHP’s mission and will lead a team of professionals who have made AMCHP a national resource, partner, and advocate for state public health leaders and others working to improve the health of women, mothers, fathers, parents, children, youth, and all families including LGBTQIA+ and individuals with special health care needs.
