Phuong Bich Tran

Research Fellow in Health Economics

Phuong has worked in health science research, with an emphasis on health economics and health systems, in various research institutions across countries including her home country Vietnam, Sweden, Zambia, France, Belgium, and now the UK.

Currently, Phuong is involved in a research program funded by the National Institute of Health and Care Research (NIHR) Policy Research Programme and reports to Professor Stavros Petrou. This project aims to generate new evidence on the cost-effectiveness of interventions for infectious diseases in England. Her role involves reviewing economic literature, analysing datasets, identifying knowledge gaps, conducting primary research, and collaborating with mathematical modellers at the University of Warwick and policymakers at the Department of Health and Social Care in the development of decision analytic models.

In addition to her focus on health economics, primary care, infectious diseases and multimorbidity, Phuong is passionate about promoting equal opportunities in science and championing equal partnerships in research between the Global North and South. These values are fundamental to her efforts to promote equality, diversity, and inclusion within the scientific community.

Phuong was selected as an Emerging Voice for Global Health in 2022. She currently serves as a Committee Member of the Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Promotion and Monitoring Committee of the International Health Economics Association. She is also a co-organiser of the Global Health Storytelling Collective together with colleagues from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
