Jennifer Prah Ruger

Professor of Medical Ethics and Health Policy, UPenn

In a world beset by serious and unconscionable health disparities, by dangerous contagions that can circle our globalized planet in hours, and by a bewildering confusion of health actors and systems, humankind needs a new vision, a new architecture, new coordination among renewed systems to ensure health for all.

Jennifer Prah Ruger is the Amartya Sen Professor of Health Equity, Economics, and Policy, and Professor of Medical Ethics and Health Policy, both at the Center for Global Health at the Perelman School of Medicine. Additionally, she is Senior Fellow at the Leonard Davis Institute for Health Economics and at the Center for Public Health Initiatives, all at the University of Pennsylvania.

Prah Ruger is the founder and director of the Health Equity and Policy Lab (HEPL) that conducts quantitative and qualitative research on the equity implications of health and social policies.
