Global Health Economics (HPA 591a)
I currently teach "Global Health Economics" at Yale. Click here to download the syllabus.
This course is designed to provide an understanding of several major issues in the organization, delivery and financing of health care in developing countries. The course draws heavily on concepts in economics that have been applied to problems in global health. The course covers the following broad areas of study: the health workforce; access to essential medicines; healthcare financing; encouraging prevention; and conditional cash transfers and health. In addition, it addresses the following specific issues: HIV/AIDS; malaria; water; nutrition; and helminth infections.
Empirical analysis with Stata
In June 2009 I co-taught a course on implementing selected econometric methods in Stata, at Chancellor College (part of the University of Malawi) in Zomba, Malawi. The week-long course was part of the Marriage Transitions in Malawi Project; sponsored by The World Bank and The Hewlett Foundation; and in collaboration with the University of Malawi and the Invest in Knowledge Initiative.
