Note Editore

50 Studies Every Global Health Provider Should Know presents a diverse series of studies that illustrate key issues in health systems and delivery, policy, ethics, bias, and social determinants of health. Selected not only for their content using a rigorous methodology, these studies were specifically chosen to represent research conducted in low- and middle-income countries by a global array of authors. For each study, a concise summary is presented with an emphasis on the results and limitations of the study, other relevant studies and information, and the implications for practice. This book is a must-read for anyone who wants to learn more about the complexity of the burden of disease and healthcare delivery in low-resource areas.


Dr. Andrea Walker, MD, graduated from the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and completed her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at UCLA. She went on to complete a Global Health Fellowship through UCSF, where she spent two years working for Indian Health Services on the Navajo Nation in the US and rural Malawi for two years. This experience showed her that many of the problems faced in such disparate communities and countries are at their core quite similar. After this experience, she has continued to work in rural America with a largely Native American population. Her focus is on promoting social justice, identifying and removing barriers to care, improving quality of care, and provision of culturally competent care. Dr. Anup Agarwal, MBBS, is a hospitalist at MedStar Health. He received his medical degree from Stanley Medical College in Chennai, India. After medical school, he spent a year working as a telemedicine consultant in Bangalore, India, where he had the privilege of providing teleconsultations via video conferencing in 22 primary health centers located in rural India. He then worked as a research assistant at Yale University with telemedicine, simulation, and technology in medicine. During his residency at Westchester County Medical Center, he volunteered at Bernard Mevs Hospital in Haiti. He went on to complete a Global Health Fellowship through UCSF. His clinical interests include chronic non-communicable disease especially diabetes and cancer, improving healthcare delivery in resource-poor settings, decision support systems in medicine and telemedicine. Yogesh Jain has an MD in Paediatrics from New Delhi but is a public health physician in practice. He has been primarily involved in 'primary health care' through founding and running community health programmes in rural Chhattisgarh in central India since 1999. He has been involved in understanding the political economy of illnesses and addressing technical and political issues that determine the health care for the rural poor through clinical care, observational research studies, training, and direct political work based on lived experience. He is a strident believer in the state as the primary provider of social services.
