Centre for Health Economics, Management and Policy - or CHEMP, as it is known - was launched two years ago. Today CHEMP offers a unique opportunity to unite and internationalize the emerging body of education and research in the field of health studies. CHEMP’s Director Professor Christopher Gerry, Chair of Internationalisation Steering Group and Academic Adviser to Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities at HSE St. Petersburg, provides an update on the Centre’s activities and achievements.
Christopher Gerry, the Academic Supervisor of the Department of Humanitarian and Social Sciences, has worked at the Higher School of Economics’ St. Petersburg campus since September 2014. Professor Gerry previously taught at University College London, where he conducted research on the economics of healthcare. More specifically, Professor Gerry studied how the economic situation affects a population’s health and the reforms BRICS countries carry out in this sphere.
