Associate Professor and Associate Director, Health Systems Program, Johns Hopkins University

With a background in politics and economics, I am broadly interested in the organization and financing of health systems in low and middle income countries. I have previously studied issues in health financing, the role of the private sector, health worker motivation, changing roles of government and the impact of global health initiatives on health systems. Currently I am particularly interested in understanding and addressing issues of sustainability and strengthening of institutions and organizational capacity.

I am Chair of the Board of Health Systems Global, a society for all those interested in health systems, and I am also CEO of the Future Health Systems consortium. I am on twitter @saracbennett.
