Analysis of health systems in developing and emerging countries

FERDI advocates that improving efficiency should be a top priority in health policy.

In partnership with CERDI, FERDI has focused its work on the analysis of health systems in developing and emerging countries. FERDI gives priority at two areas of applied research because of their very high importance for health policies: The efficiency of health care structures, and health financing. 

↪ To provide governments and their partners with research-based information that supports economically feasible and socially and politically acceptable decision-making.

↪ To contribute to strengthening human capital in health, particularly in relation to the health MDGs.

Achievements 2023-2024

↪ The conclusions of the study on the efficiency of a sample of family health centres in Ulan Bator (Mongolia) were included in a petition to Parliament submitted by the Mongolian Ministry of Health. The study was conducted by Jacky Mathonnat in partnership with the Centre for Health Development.

 ↪ Jacky Mathonnat is taking part in the "Improving the efficiency of public and private general hospitals in Lomé and two regional cities and Determinants of preventive health behaviour among young women in Togo" programme. This programme, defined with the Togolese Ministry of Health is being carried out in collaboration with LEDi (Dijon Economics Laboratory, University of Burgundy) and the Economic Analysis of Public Policies team (ANEPP) at the University of Lomé.
