Dr. Eran Bendavid's research interests involve understanding the relationship between policies and health outcomes in developing countries. Dr. Bendavid explores how decisions about foreign assistance for health are made, and how those decisions affect health and health delivery systems in recipient countries. He further explores issues of resource allocation in low and middle-income countries through disease modeling and cost-effectiveness analyses.
Dr. Bendavid's group's research touches every facet of global health policy analysis. They study how economic, political, and natural environments affect population health; they evaluate the comparative effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of interventions for disease control in low- and middle-income countries; and they develop and apply tools from across the quantitative spectrum.
