About Kristof Decoster

With a background in political science, I've been working at the Institute of Tropical Medicine (ITM), Antwerp, since 2007. Currently I'm the main editor of the International Health Policies (IHP) newsletter, and Emerging Voices for Global Health liaison with ITM. In the knowledge management I'm involved in, I focus on the global health policy agenda, global health governance & governance for health, and health policy & systems research.
