Population Health Resource Directory

Aaron Katz


I teach, conduct research, and carry out “service” (technical assistance) about how governments make decisions that affect people’s and communities’ health. This work focuses on institutional, power, and resource barriers and facilitators that affect underlying determinants of health, including the role of stakeholders and empirical evidence in the policy-making process. I have been doing this work since the mid-1970s at the local, state/provincial, and national levels in the U.S. and a few other wealthy countries, and in low-resource countries in Africa, Asia, and the Americas.
