Major funding success for our Global Health team

Our Global Health team at CHE has been awarded a £2 million grant, funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), to establish a Global Health Research Group on Global Health Econometrics and Economics (GHE2). Our group will use the 3-year funding to evaluate various large-scale health policies in Brazil, South Africa and Indonesia, in partnership with leading research institutions in these countries. Follow the links to one of the press releases and to a lay summary of the work for more details.

New project on health system efficiency in Latin America

I have been awarded a grant as Principal Investigator for a study of health system efficiency in the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). The study will provide a quantitative and comparative assessment of the efficiency with which the health systems of LAC countries translate existing resources into a given level of performance; identify the main determinants of different levels of efficiency across LAC health systems; and give insights into the magnitude of influence of these determinants on current levels of system efficiency in the region. The project is funded by the Inter-American Development Bank and will conclude in July 2017.

My co-authors and I have been awarded the American Economic Journal (AEJ) "Best Paper Prize" 2016!

The American Economic Association has chosen my joint paper with Marty Gaynor and Carol Propper on hospital competition in the NHS, "Death by Market Power: Reform, Competition, and Patient Outcomes in the National Health Service", for the American Economic Journal: Economic Policy Best Paper prize. This is a prestigious prize that covers papers published in the last three years so I am delighted of course!

The prize was awarded in Chicago during the ASSA meetings (January 2017) and this is the link for the press release: https://www.aeaweb.org/news/press-release-awards-2016, where you can now download a complimentary copy of the paper.
