Media Coverage of Latest HSI Research

Health care spending is a large – and ever increasing – portion of government budgets. Improving its efficiency has therefore become critically important. In the first-ever study to estimate health spending efficiency by gender across 27 industrialized nations, HSI researchers discovered significant disparities within countries, with stronger gains in life expectancy for men than for women in nearly every nation.

The study, “Analyzing Whether Countries Are Equally Efficient at Improving Longevity for Men and Women,” was led by Douglas Barthold and co-authored by Arijit Nandi, José M. M. Rodríguez, and Jody Heymann, and has been published in the American Journal of Public Health.


The published findings of the study can be accessed via the AJPH‘s website, here.
