Examining the Role of Economists in Global Health
August 2, 2012
In this post in the Center for Global Development's (CGD) "Global Health Policy" blog, Amanda Glassman, director of global health policy and a research fellow at the center, reports on the contribution of economists to the global health field, writing, "Economists are not global health's most popular human resource. ... Yet a new view of the contribution of economists to global health is emerging." She notes, "At the International AIDS Economics Network (IAEN) meeting earlier this month, [U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator] Ambassador Eric Goosby gave a terrific overview of the policy questions that need to be addressed by the field and the role that economists need to play in improving the efficiency and effectiveness of the HIV/AIDS response," and provides a number of quotes from his address (8/1).
