David's research integrates political economy and public health.
He is currently focusing on three areas of population health and development:
- Macro-social and -economic determinants of health
- Political economy of global health and development
- Comparative social welfare.
He uses data and modelling to address complex questions including:
- Will the ongoing financial crisis make us sick?
- Is global health aid reaching the world's poorest and most vulnerable groups?
- Why did so many Russian men die during the transition to capitalism in the early 1990s?
- Does investing in social welfare improve health?
- Why are HIV and tuberculosis so difficult to stop in sub-Saharan Africa?
- How can health systems provide affordable care for everyone?
