Liana Rosenkrantz Woskie
Liana completed a BA at Wesleyan University and an MSc in Health Policy, Planning and Financing at LSE and LSHTM as a fully funded Global Grant Fellow. While in London she worked for the WHO and EU Observatory on Health Systems researching incentives for integrated care. Prior to her MSc, Liana studied insurance continuity with the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services and was a Global Health Corps Fellow at Partner’s In Health’s PACT Project. PACT worked with US health centers, from New York City to the Navajo Nation, to integrate Community Health Workers (CHWs) into primary care. Interested in governments’ role in delivering patient-centered care, Liana has traveled to over ten countries studying iterations of the CHW model towards this end. Since coming to Harvard she has worked with a small team led by Dr. Jha to launch the Initiative on Global Health Quality (HIGHQ), an effort to design and evaluate health policies that improve care quality at the regional and national levels. Liana is also the Institute's primary point on Global Response to Pandemics. This work began during the Ebola outbreak and has since expanded to address issues of global governance across diseases. As such, Liana has overseen HGHI's edX course on Ebola, the Independent Panel with LSHTM as well as projects on WHO reform and financing.
