New external PhD student - Sofie Larsson

News: Jan 10, 2017

Sofie Larsson has a master's degree in Economics from Lund University and currently works as a health economist at the Public Health Agency of Sweden. The Health Metrics unit is now very happy to welcome Sofie as an external PhD student in health economics based on the project "Economic Impact of Antimicrobial Resistance".

Sweden still has relatively low levels of antimicrobial resistance compared to other European countries and other countries around the world. This mostly depends on relatively low levels of antibiotic use in humans and animals. Even so, these levels are likely to increase because of increased levels of global migration and traveling.

The main purpose of Sofie’s research program is to quantify actual costs and effects of infections caused by antimicrobial resistance in order to evaluate different policy strategies used to slow down development of resistance, in a Swedish context.

For example, some studies will investigate if different interventions in this field, for example already ongoing projects such as screening or new suggested interventions in the hospital environment, are cost-effective. Studies will be carried out within the Public Health Agency of Sweden’s commissions in the field.

Sofie is also planning to participate in teaching during her PhD studies, e.g. regarding topics on cost-effectiveness analysis methods. The Health Metrics unit are very happy to welcome Sofie Larsson as a new external PhD student to the growing Health Economics Research Group at the unit.
