Research Analyst Internship

About Good Policies

A promising startup from Charity Entrepreneurships 2019 batch is investigating health policy changes that have been shown to be exceptionally cost effective. Increasing taxes on tobacco products is likely to be the best way of reducing tobacco consumption, and yet this is vastly underutilised by governments globally. The World Health Organization and Copenhagen Consensus state that this is among the most cost effective policy interventions in global health that they have evaluated.
