Technical Advisor, currently working in Philippines
Deo has worked on health systems research projects including evidence generation, research priority-setting, and program evaluation in areas such as maternal health and local governance. He has been part of teams that evaluated a nationwide training program for local government executives, developed a national agenda for health research, and scoped the evidence on health impacts of climate change in the Philippines.
Deo joined the ThinkWell team to help both local and national governments establish universal healthcare, primarily through financing. He sees UHC as a key adaptation of the Philippine health system to combat the projected impacts of climate change on health.
