Miss Manon Haemmerli
15-17 Tavistock Place
After completing an MSc in Physics at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (Switzerland), I obtained an MSc in Public Health at LSHTM. I joined the department of Global Health and Development as a Research Fellow in Health Economics in February 2015. I am also a PhD student at LSHTM since September 2018.
I am currently working on the ENHANCE project, which is joint between LSHTM, the University of New South Wales and the University of Indonesia, aimed at studying the equity impact of health financing reforms in Indonesia.
My PhD is embedded in this project and focuses on the measurement of health equity. Using large-scale household surveys, I aim to assess the extent to which different socioeconomic groups benefit from public financing for health through their use of health services using a methodology in which the benefits of health spending are weighted to reflect the quality of services, especially important in countries such as Indonesia where the poor typically utilise lower quality health services compared richer groups.
Prior to this project I have been working as a quantitative researcher on the evaluation of three social franchise programs for maternal health in India and Uganda (as part of the Maternal healthcare Markets Evaluation Team). Among other things, I was working on assessing the socio-economic profile of private facilities' users in these settings.
