Margaret  Huff-Rousselle's picture

Profile

Dr. Huff-Rousselle has over 30 years of consulting, project management, teaching, and research experience in global health, including residency in 10 countries and roughly 100 short term consultancies in over 50 countries. Her expertise includes policy formulation, financing, and management issues in the health sector (with emphasis on both macro and micro health sector financing), marketing and behavior change strategies, non-governmental and quasi-governmental institutional development, and public-private sector policy and management issues in the pharmaceutical sector.

She has directed multi-country technical assistance projects in health sector reform and financing, and in pharmaceutical sector policy and financing. In long-term positions in Asia, the Caribbean, and the Middle East, she has been instrumental in the establishment and development of organizations (working in pharmaceutical supply, reproductive health and HIV/AIDS, or training and research), and her doctoral research considered the effects of foreign aid on indigenous health sector organizations. Her research interests combine qualitative research (e.g. analytical case studies, focus group discussion, stakeholder consultation) with financial and marketing analysis (e.g. costing, break-even analysis, incentives analysis, pricing strategies).

Dr. Huff-Rousselle has current or former faculty appointments at Boston University (both School of Management and School of Public Health), Brandeis University Heller School, Harvard University, Massachusetts School of Pharmacy and Health Services, Tulane University, and Keele University (England). She teaches graduate courses on comparative health systems, health policy formulation and implementation, health/social marketing and behavior change, and global pharmaceutical issues from both public policy and industrial strategy perspectives. She has served on the Governing Council of American Public Health Association, the Review Committee for the Science-to-Business Program of the Canadian Institutes Health Research, the Global Fund's Technical Review Board, and the Editorial Board of The International Journal of Health Planning and Management. She has published over 50 articles and case studies on health sector issues in national and regional newspapers, professional magazines, and peer-reviewed journals. Dr. Huff-Rousselle speaks French and English, and is a citizen of Canada and the United States.
