SESSION OVERVIEW

There are numerous opportunities in utilizing quantitative methods in health and humanitarian systems. There are often limited resources and multiple stakeholders in these settings, and efficient and effective decision-making is important for resource utilization as well as improved outcomes for individuals or populations. We will discuss a few examples of the applications of quantitative methods in health and humanitarian systems, such as pre-positioning inventory for disaster preparedness, post-disaster debris management, intervention strategies and resource allocation for disease management, and allocation of healthcare workers to geographic areas.

SESSION SPEAKER

Pinar Keskinocak, William W. George Chair and Professor, ISyE and ADVANCE Professor, College of Engineering and and Director of the Center for Health and Humanitarian Systems
