Key insights on using research in developing countries to shape global health policy


In this episode of VoxDevTalks, we are joined by Dr. Zulfiqar Bhutta, one of the global leaders in implementing large-scale public health programmes in developing countries, to discuss key lessons learned from a long career working in health research and policy. This wide ranging conversation recaps important projects from Dr. Zulfiqar Bhutta's career, including examples of successful research in developing countries which have shaped global health policy, and what lessons about moving research into practice we can draw from these experiences. The discussion then moves on to identify important areas of future research, the need for interdisciplinary collaboration, and how development economists can improve their work in this field.
