Dr. Cheryl Camillo is an interdisciplinary scholar-practitioner with 30 years of success in developing and implementing solutions to real-world social policy and governance problems. The overarching purpose of her research is to enhance global population health by improving health and well-being, particularly for vulnerable populations. In pursuing this objective, she focuses on three areas of research: 1.) improving access to health insurance and services by understanding and addressing barriers and facilitators experienced by patients and sub-groups of the population; 2.) formulating and implementing health system reforms, especially at the sub-national level of government using a comparative lens; and 3.) identifying intersectoral, interagency, and intergovernmental strategies for adopting an upstream approach to health and well-being.
