As part of the Nossal Annual Forum Barbara McPake is taking part in a Reddit “IAmA”. This is an online forum where users post “AMAs” (for “Ask Me Anything”) and others can ask questions on a particular topic. Anyone can join in, you just need to register with Reddit (which takes seconds).
Barbara is a health economist specialising in health policy and health systems research in low- and middle-income countries. She is Director of the Nossal Institute for Global Health and heads the ReBUILD Consortium (along with Tim Martineau).
So far Barbara’s fielded a range of questions:
- How much should the USA worry about the Ebola virus? Does it have the potential to spread like in other parts of the world?
- In a perfect world – assuming everything was to run perfectly! – how should emergency responses to health crises function?
- How often and in what ways does superstition get in the way of you and yours trying to help?
