FXB Work-in Progress Series Presents Jesse Boardman Bump, PhD

Jesse B. Bump is Lecturer on Global Health Policy in the Department of Global Health and Population, and Executive Director of the Takemi Program in International Health at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Dr. Bump’s research focuses on the historical, political, and economic forces that are among the most fundamental determinants of ill health and the effectiveness of related institutions. Projects have investigated the history of child health problems such as diarrheal disease and congenital syphilis to explain how issues rise and fall on the global health agenda and to produce strategies to better align political visibility with health needs; the historical development of health systems and the implications for development assistance in that area; and the political economy of policy making and implementation in areas such as universal health coverage, humanitarian assistance, tobacco control, and nutrition governance.
