Innovate Humanitarian Health Financing for Refugees 17 April 2017.

Principal Author: Paul Spiegel (Johns Hopkins School of Public Health | Contributing Authors: Becky Chanis (Johns Hopkins School of Public Health) Shannon Doocy (Johns Hopkins School of Public Health) Antonio Trujillo (Johns Hopkins School of Public Health) | View Report

Summary - Providing universal health care coverage to refugees can enable the achievement of three important but often unattainable objectives: 1) affordable and cost-effective health care for refugees from the onset of an emergency until its resolution; 2) development of a (sub) national health care coverage system for refugees or the improvement of an existing health care coverage system for nationals; and 3) a reduction in dependency and an improvement in the sustainability of health care services for refugees - while reducing costs to governments and humanitarian and development organisations. Numerous innovative approaches for financing health care have been implemented successfully in a variety of contexts, but these approaches have not been sufficiently explored as solutions for financing the health care of refugees.  This study aims to fill this gap by producing a white paper that will explore various options for providing universal health care coverage to refugees in different contexts.  The feasibility of implementing each option will be a key part of the study. 


Anti-Human Trafficking in Thailand: A Stakeholder analysis of Thai Government efforts, the U.S. tip report and rankings and recommendations for action. 30 June 2016.

Principal Author: Courtland Robinson (Johns Hopkins School of Public Health) | Contributing Authors: Charlie Thame (Johns Hopkins School of Public Health) Casey Branchini (Johns Hopkins School of Public Health) | View Report

Summary - The goal of this study was to conduct an assessment of Thailand’s initiatives to counter human trafficking in the last five years, through a review of documents and key informant interviews (KIIs) with a range of experts, including officials from the Royal Thai Government (RTG) and U.S. Government (USG), non-governmental organizations (NGOs), international organizations (IOs), and academic institutions (ACA). This study also included an assessment of the methodology used by the U.S. Department of State’s Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons (TIP Office) to rank foreign country efforts to eliminate severe forms of trafficking in persons.
