The UCL Centre for Global Health Economics

Dr Timothy Colbourn

Timothy joined the Centre for International Health and Development at ICH (a precursor to the new UCL Institute for Global Health) in 2007, living and working in Malawi for 4 years on a large randomised controlled trial of community women’s groups and health facility quality improvement aimed at reducing maternal and neonatal mortality. During this time he also completed a PhD in Health Economics part-time, where he investigated benefits and costs of the women’s group intervention related to quality of life, as well as novel methods of measuring them. He is now based in London, but still travels to Malawi regularly, as well as to other focal countries of the projects he work on, including recently Nepal, Mozambique and Burkina Faso.
