Global Health Impact project refines index ahead of NYU law seminar

January 6, 2013 in ASAP Projects, News

The Global Health Impact project is happy to welcome a new batch of interns working on improving the first draft of the index that will appear in a proceedings from the Global Administrative Law seminar put on by New York University in Rome this summer!

The Global Health Impact project has conducted 40 sensitivity analyses of the model for the rating of pharmaceutical companies on the basis of their drugs’ global health impact. The team welcomes collaboration from public health experts working on malaria, HIV/AIDS, and, especially, TB, as well as from advanced PhD students or researchers doing experimental economics to design a test to see if people will be willing to use a label on the basis of our model rating system. Finally, the team is looking to collaborate with a few computer programmers to develop a phone application to make the final version of the ratings system more widely available.
