Priscilla Magrath, PhD, joined the College of Public Health in January 2018. She is a Medical Anthropologist specializing in global health policy and practice. Recent work in Indonesia has examined how global health policies are interpreted and implemented in the areas of decentralization, health insurance and maternal health. Priscilla is especially interested in the use of moral frames such as the right to health in health policy and health promotion and this is the topic of her talk today.
Priscilla has extensive experience in international health programs including working with USAID on an ongoing major urban WASH program in Indonesia; with WaterAid on WASH access issues for people living with HIV/AIDS in Ethiopia; with CARE on the impact of HIV/AIDS on livelihoods in Lesotho; and with the World Bank on health care access, public accountability, decentralization and health financing in Indonesia.
