About Bich Phuong Tran

I am keen on working to improve the health and wellbeing of communities through the myriad paradigms of research, some of which pertain to health system/health economics/health equity/TB/NCDs in both high and low-middle income countries. I have accumulated experience in quantitative/qualitative methods, developing research protocols, formulating plans for fieldwork, supervising data collection process, data analysis, manuscript writing & organizing dissemination workshops. Currently, my PhD project focuses on multimorbidity economics: understanding the burden, management and costs of multimorbidity, particularly chronic NCDs in the Belgium health system.
