Non solum data. Data sine monito oculo nihil sunt.

Hi there!  I’m Gatien.

Field health economist at the International Vaccine Access Center (IVAC) @ Johns Hopkins University.

My specialty is getting to know and analyze the economic burden of disease through costing and willingness-to-pay. I also worked for a few years on health literacy, open access publishing, waiting times for health care, and universal health coverage.

And I’m an amateur blogger.
