Caesar asks the questions of Proochista and they discuss the importance of, and limitations to, using evidence in global health decision making and the need to be aware of all the factors that influence global health, not just data.

Professor Proochista Ariana is the Course Director for the MSc in International Health and Tropical Medicine, IHTM at the University of Oxford. Proochista holds a Master’s in International Health from Harvard University and a Doctorate in International Development from University of Oxford, as well as a Post Graduate Diploma in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education, also from Oxford. Her research empirically examines the relationship between processes of development and health in resource limited and transition contexts, appreciating the multidimensionality of both.
