PRICELESS SA in the the Wits School of Public Health will host a talk to be presented by Paul Revill.
Revill is a Research Fellow for the Team for Economic Evaluation and Health Technology Assessment (TEEHTA) and is the Theme Lead in Global Health Economic Evaluation at the Centre for Health Economics, University of York, England. He was previously an economist at the Ministry of Health, Malawi, and a Research Fellow at the Centre for Global Health and Health Policy Management at Trinity College Dublin.
His research interests revolve around the development of methods and applied economic evaluation to inform resource allocation decisions within healthcare sectors of low- and middle-income countries, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa and related to HIV. The underlying aim of his work is to ensure that resources committed to healthcare are spent in ways likely to lead to greatest improvements in population health and wellbeing, recognizing the complexities of real world healthcare systems.
Revill is a key partner in the HIV Modelling Consortium, a network of modellers and health economists that supports scientific decision-making on resource allocation in HIV. He collaborates closely with the HIV Epidemiology and Biostatistics Group at University College London and has an affiliated position with the Medical Research Council (MRC) Clinical Trials Unit (CTU).
