Dr Meghan Kumar
BA MSc PhD
of Health Economics
After completing PhD work related to economic evaluation of quality improvement in community health programs, I have joined the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in May 2020 as an Assistant Professor of Health Economics.
I have previously working on mixed methods research around quality of care in community health programs in multiple low- and middle-income countries; I've been based out of Nairobi, Kenya for nearly ten years.
I have also worked as a consultant on public health issues that affect the region of sub-Saharan Africa, including: community health and task-shifting, malaria drug markets, and the role of the private sector.
My current work is an economic evaluation of a complex intervention in Kenya, Malawi, Nigeria, and Tanzania related to newborn health with the NEST360 consortium.
