Boniface Oyugi

Commonwealth PhD Scholarship Student


I joined CHSS in 2017 as a Commonwealth PhD Scholarship candidate on social policy (health economics). Before CHSS I worked as a senior scientist-health economist at the Philips Africa Research Hub and I was also teaching health economics and policy at the University of Nairobi School of Public Health. I have also worked as a health economics and health policy consultant at the University of Nairobi Enterprise and Services Consultancy on a collaborative Output Based Approach project with the Ministry of Health Kenya.

I am currently researching the costs and quality of health issues (care and outcomes) in relationship to policy and practice that legislate the free maternal policy in Kenya. It evaluates the correlation between the actual policy implementation process with the cost and quality issues, using a mixed method approach (qualitative, quantitative, and econometrics methods).

My research interests are in the area of Health Economics, Health Economic Evaluation, Health Policy Analysis, Costing analysis, Cost effective analysis, Healthcare Financing, Monitoring and Evaluation of Health care, and Leadership.
