Raisa Deber

Raisa Deber, Ph.D. Professor, Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario.

Raisa Deber, PhD (MIT) has lectured, mentored, published and consulted on health policy at local, provincial, national and international levels.

Professor Deber’s current research centers on Canadian health policy. Current projects, conducted with colleagues and students, include: implications of the distribution of health expenditures and public/private roles for financing and delivery of health services; examination of where nurses and other health professionals work and the factors associated with differential "stickiness" across sub-sectors; issues associated with the movement of care from hospitals to home and community; and approaches to accountability. She is the director of the CIHR Team in Community Care and Health Human Resources.

In 2009, Professor Deber received one of Canada’s most prestigious lectureships, the Emmett Hall Memorial Lectureship; it recognizes outstanding contributions to the health ideals articulated by Justice Hall: equity, fairness, justice and efficiency.
