Takemi Program in International Health – The Takemi Program in International Health at the Harvard School of Public Health is an interdisciplinary research program that focuses on the problems of mobilizing, allocating, and maintaining limited resources to improve health. To address these issues, the program brings together at Harvard a small group of Takemi Fellows, mid-career professionals from around the world, with particular emphasis on fellows from developing countries (www.hsph.harvard.edu/takemi).

PolicyMaker Software – This Windows-based software is a rapid assessment method for analyzing and managing the politics of public policy. Politics affects all aspects of public policy — what gets on the agenda, who supports an issue, who opposes an issue, whether an issue receives official approval, and whether the official policy is implemented. PolicyMaker is a logical and formal procedure to provide practical advice on how to manage the political aspects of public policy. The method helps decision-makers improve the political feasibility of their policy.  The full version of the software is available for free at Dr. Reich’s personal website.
