Implementation of Nepal's Safe Delivery Incentive Programme
Presenter: Timothy Powell-Jackson, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine
My interest in health economics began while working in the Ministry of Health in Rwanda. I spent two years there working on health system financing issues, strategic planning and donor coordination. I continued to work on many of same issues on a consultancy basis in various low-income countries. I returned to the UK and took up a post as a research fellow at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine where my research focused on financing of maternal and child health and, in particular, global aid flows to this area. More recently, I've been involved in the evaluation of a safe delivery incentive programme in Nepal. As a result, my current research interest lies in the evaluation of public health policy using quasi-experimental methods.
