Description:

A multidisciplinary team of faculty and researchers from Harvard is working closely with representatives from the Mexican government, specifically the Mexican Ministry of Health to engage in collaborative research examining multiple aspects of the health systems in Mexico. The overall project is intended to exchange intellectual capital between the collaborating researchers while at the same time providing valuable evidence-based insights into the real challenges affecting public health in Mexico, which in turn will have a direct impact on the health policies implemented by the Mexican government. The project is comprised of three areas of focus; evaluation of the system of social protection, health systems, and priority setting.
