Project summary

Evelyn is a health systems research scientist interested in health policy and financing. Her Fellowship supports her Master's in Health Policy Planning and Financing at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and a project looking at direct facility funding through the Health Sector Services Fund (HSSF) in Kenya's health centres and dispensaries. This project will consider how the design and implementation of HSSF varies across counties, and explore the perceived impact of different implementation strategies on health facility performance and community engagement. Evelyn works with Dr Sassy Molyneux at the KEMRI-Wellcome Trust Research Programme, and Dr Catherine Goodman at the London School.

This grant was awarded under the scheme's previous name of Master's Fellowships in Public Health and Tropical Medicine.
