Get together with others based in the DC area interested in applying Effective Altruism ideas to global health and development. This is part of a monthly series of gatherings. All our welcome – no background or experience required.

Paul Revill, Professor and Co-Director of the Global Health team at University of York’s world-renowned Centre for Health Economics, joins us this month.

Under the banner of the Thanzi programme, Paul and his colleagues have developed methods that to address the most pressing resource allocation questions facing low- and middle-income countries, with associated large consequences for population health. These cover questions such as:

(a)    Which interventions to prioritize for funding? See here.

(b)    From this, what are the greatest needs for strengthening the health system? Here.

(c)     How should a national authority allocate its budget over geographical units? Here.

(d)    How can investments in interventions covering health and other sectors (i.e., addressing determinants of health) be informed? Here

(e)    How can we assess the equity consequences of budget allocations and how can countries achieve greater health equity? See here.

(f)      What are the greatest priorities for additional evidence generation?  See here.

The Thanzi programme makes accompanying contributions to capacity building in the countries where they work (e.g., see this website) and also to support trusted research-to-policy dialogue on resource allocation.  You can see this webpage that summarizes how they typically like to work.  

All EA DC event attendees are required to follow the code of conduct.
