Brian Hutchinson, a research public health analyst in the Center for Global Noncommunicable Diseases at RTI International, specializes in economic evaluations of health programs in low- and middle-income countries. Mr. Hutchinson performs a wide array of economic analyses, including costing, cost-minimization, cost-benefit, and return-on-investment analyses. He has created several tools to facilitate economic evaluations, including the HEARTS Costing Tool, an Excel-based tool that helps health districts to estimate the costs of implementing the WHO HEARTS technical package for cardiovascular disease management in primary health care. A compelling communicator, he effectively translates data for decision-makers, and has presented to parliamentarians, international organizations, and other high-level stakeholders.
