On April 26 and 27, the Center for Democracy, Development and Rule of Law (CDDRL) and the Center for Health Policy (CHP-PCOR) at Stanford University will hold a two-day conference on Governance and Health. The conference aims to bring together political scientists, economists, medical doctors, and health policy experts seeking to provide better answers as to how governance may hinder or improve health in developing countries. There will be a focus on highlighting empirical tools and research strategies such as surveys, randomized control trials, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and behavioral experiments to allow researchers to share expertise and exchange ideas about new approaches to studying the links between governance and health. Understanding the mechanisms linking governance to health will help move us toward meaningful policy recommendations to save lives and improve wellbeing.
