Internationally, we work with health ministries, international agencies such as WHO, World Bank and ADB, and leading universities such as Harvard University. Our work spans health systems, health economics, social protection, and equity, and in the past year much of our work has focused on the national and global challenge of COVID-19. We are looking for motivated and talented individuals with an interest in our core areas of work.
