Meet our Health Economist - Journey of Dr Karen Grépin 我們的衞生經濟學家 – Karen Grépin

Dr Karen Grépin is a health economist and comparative health systems researcher. In early 2020, she moved from Canada to Hong Kong to join the School of Public Health, HKU. Since obtaining her PhD in Heath Policy (Economics) from Harvard University, Dr Grépin has worked extensively on health policies which developing countries adopt, and their impact on population health. Immediately after arriving in Hong Kong, Dr Grépin's experience has been foundational to understanding and implementing COVID-19 governmental responses in Africa, and to providing recommendations on how governments in Asia and around the world must prepare for and respond to future outbreaks.
