Enrique M. Saldarriaga
Prevention Effectiveness Fellow
I’m a Health Economist with several years of experience in generating evidence to inform public health decision making processes. I'm a Prevention Effectiveness Fellow in the Division of STD Prevention, CDC, Atlanta, GA.
I graduated from the PhD in Health Economics at The CHOICE Institute, University of Washington. My dissertation titled "The Value of using local data to allocate resources to fight the HIV Epidemic. Case of study in Atlanta, Georgia" combines advanced statistical methods with infectious disease modeling to quantify the economic value of improving the estimates of HIV at the zip code level as a tool to improve resources allocation within a city and long-term health outcomes.
Prior to my doctoral training, I was a Researcher at the School of Public Health, University Cayetano Heredia, where I focused on cost-effective analyses and policy evaluation. I also served in the Peruvian Ministry of Health leading the creation of a healthcare services forecasting unit.
