CHDS faculty Stéphane Verguet has been promoted to Associate Professor of Global Health in the Department of Global Health and Population at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
Verguet’s research focuses on health decision science and priority setting, particularly the development of mathematical and computational decision-making models to better design health policies. He uses extended cost-effectiveness analysis (ECEA), a methodology that he co-developed, to examine the effect of policies on equity and financial risk protection outcomes, and applies the method to global health priority setting. This includes the evaluation of large scale and system-wide interventions, such as mass immunization campaigns, excise taxes on tobacco, and essential health benefit packages. Verguet anchors his research in practice and policy by partnering with countries to develop contextualized models, with an emphasis on local capacity building and engagement.
Verguet instructs two modeling courses at the Harvard Chan School, GHP 501: Modeling for Health System Analysis & Priority Setting and GHP 201: Advanced Modeling for Health System Analysis & Priority Setting. In addition to his contributions to teaching and mentorship, Verguet serves on numerous committees at the School and has been Principle Investigator on grants for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, GAVI, the Vaccine Alliance, the National Institutes of Health, and the World Bank.
