4 March 2016: More Weak Links in the Chain: Problems in Indian health policy and its analysis

Jeffrey S. Hammer
Princeton University

Hammer will examine Indian health policy from the lens of public economics. He will show how the major market failures characteristic of the health sector continue to remain unaddressed in India, while much attention is paid—both rhetorically and through budgets allocations–on a universal primary care system that has not been working well. Recent data on the performance of the public and private sectors in primary curative care will be presented to show why and how they illustrate a legitimate cause for alarm.

Date: March 4, 2016
Time: 03:30 P.M.
