Current Research Projects

  • Evaluation of Health Technology Assessment in India-Return on Investment: In this activity, we aimed to demonstrate the impact of HTA in India after the institutionalisation of Indian HTA body in 2017. We estimated impact in terms of returns of investment (RoI) from economic perspective selecting 4 sample HTAs commissioned and completed by HTAIN.
  • Impact assessment of living laboratory project in Glasgow:  In this project, we intend to assess the impact of the living laboratory project in Glasgow. Living laboratory project is a multi-component project and therefore, impact assessment will be multi-dimensional in nature. We aim to assess/demonstrate the impact at systems level (health, social, economic impact etc.) as a result of living laboratory project using mixed-methods approach and selecting case studies from project components.
  • Pilot study of a ketogenic diet in bipolar disorder

  • Book Chapter on ‘Fiscal Space for Health’: Invited to co-author a chapter on ‘Fiscal Space for Health’. Book: Health Financing in Low and Middle Income Countries: the Path to Universal Health Coverage.
