Michael Gusmano’s work compares the performance of health systems in high- and middle-income countries, including Brazil, China, England, France, and Italy. His research is particularly focused on policy efforts to address health and health care inequalities.
During the past 20 years, he has compared the performance of health systems in global cities. By comparing similar cities that exist within different national policy contexts, his work is able to explore the consequences of national health and social policies for urban health. By using individual and ecological data at the neighborhood level, his research has contributed to a better understanding of factors that explain differences in health outcomes within cities. Finally, his and colleagues’ analysis of city-level data also has allowed for assessing the impact of local interventions designed to improve health and health care outcomes.
