Population Health Metrics Research Consortium Project

Christopher Murray, President and Fellows of Harvard College & University of Washington (Seattle, Washington, United States)
Jul 1, 2005

In the developing world, major gaps in methods and technologies to measure health status make it difficult to address inequities in health through changes in policy. Dr. Murray is leading an international team of investigators that is working to develop new technologies and methods for assessing health status in the developing world. Combining epidemiology, biomedical research, and population health assessment, the team hopes to produce new measurement tools that are science-based, standardized, and applicable to different resource-poor settings.
