Governance of Infectious Disease (GID) Research Group
The Governance of Infectious Disease (GID) research group was created to address questions about how and why different governing authorities respond to the the threat of communicable infectious diseases (e.g. HIV, TB, malaria, cholera, influenza) in different ways. The goal is to use qualitative and quantitative social scientific analyses to detect systematic patterns in the timing, scope, and quality of responses to such public health threats. As contrasted with intiatives that focus on developing and assessing effective policies and solutions, this research investigates the social, political, and economic drivers of policy-making and policy implementation. In addition, we will consider the broader political implications of the spread of infectious disease and of substantial policy responses.
