About this Event

On behalf of Professor Frank Tanser, Director of the Lincoln International Institute for Rural Health, we are delighted to invite you to join a guest webinar by Professor Till Bärnighausen. Till will use this opportunity to talk about “Conducting Intervention Research at the Population Level”

Prof. Dr. Till Bärnighausen is the Director of the Heidelberg Institute of Global Health (HIGH), Medical Faculty and University Hospital of the University of Heidelberg. He is also the Alexander von Humboldt Professor at the University of Heidelberg, Faculty Fellow at the Harvard Centre for Population and Development Studies, and Senior Faculty at one of the five Global Programmes of the British Wellcome Trust, the Africa Health Research Institute (AHRI) in South Africa.

Prof. Bärnighausen’s research focuses on identifying, designing and testing novel interventions for population health and establishing the causal impact of interventions on population health, social and economic outcomes. In particular, he works on large-scale population-based experiments and quasi-experiments to reduce major global disease burdens in Africa, Asia and Europe – such as HIV, COVID-19, diabetes, hypertension, depression, and maternal and child health. His work has also contributed to our understanding of the major structural and behavioural drivers of population health, including aging, mobility, climate change, sexual risk behaviours, diet, exercise and drug use.

Prof. Bärnighausen has published more than 500 peer-reviewed articles, including in Science, Science Translational Medicine, Nature Communications, PNAS, Lancet, Lancet Global Health, JAMA, JAMA Internal Medicine, PLOS Medicine, BMC Medicine, and BMJ. His publications have been cited >45,000 times (for an h-index of 84).
