Drew Cameron is an Assistant Professor of Public Health (Health Policy) in the Department of Health Policy and Management and the Center for Methods in Implementation and Prevention Science (CMIPS) at the Yale School of Public Health. He is a health economist whose research focuses on the evaluation of health and development programs in resource-poor and low- and middle-income country settings. In these settings, he studies the role of targeted subsidies to increase the future demand for goods associated with health benefits, the use of ‘nudges’ to improve health seeking behavior, and costing and cost-effectiveness analytic methods that address demand- and supply-side constraints. His work has typically focused on child growth and early childhood development, water sanitation and hygiene, HIV/AIDS, health in carceral settings, rural development and the quality of primary care. He holds an undergraduate degree from the University of Puget Sound, an MA in International Development from the American University School of International Service and a PhD in Health Policy from the University of California, Berkeley School of Public Health.
