Research

 

Kristian's current research interest is on economic evaluation of malaria interventions mainly in Africa focusing in particular on artemisinin-based combination therapies (ACTs) and malaria rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs). This involves studying various aspects including different delivery mechanisms, the effect of adherence to RDT results and different epidemiological settings. In addition, he has participated in different research projects on the prevention of malaria in pregnancy including intermittent preventive therapy and bed nets. Other research interests include community-based health insurance, pay-for performance in health care, costing of health services, economic evaluation and measurement of the burden of disease using Disability-Ajusted Life Years.
