Health inequalities exist within as well as between countries and are a priority for global health. The SPHI utilises and enhances the 100 million cohort in Brazil to understand health inequalities in Brazil and evaluate social policies using a natural experiment approach. The postholder will conduct, manage and publish research in the area of Global health inequalities as well as assist in managing and directing this complex and challenging project. Specifically, the postholder will create a deprivation index for Brazil and use this to conduct an evaluation of the “Bolsa Familia” and related social protection policies in Brazil.
