UCA Appoints Health Economist to Address Health Policy Issues
The University of Central Asia’s Institute of Public Policy and Administration (IPPA) has appointed Michael Onah, a health economist, as Senior Research Fellow. Health policy is one of the most critical issues facing governments in Central Asia. They inherited from the Soviet era rather developed health care systems and it is a challenge for them to maintain essential health care functions given available resources, and adjust to technological and socio-economic changes. While health care reform has been on the agenda for many years, its progress has been stymied by the absence of endogenous evidence-based analysis that could inform decision-makers. Many issues confronting Central Asia are common to a large number of low- and middle-income countries, and knowledge generated by IPPA on health policy questions can also be relevant to other countries.
