Raisa Deber

Professor of Health Policy, Department of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation, Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario.

Born in Toronto, Professor Deber received her PhD in political science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She has lectured and published extensively on Canadian health policy, and advised numerous local, provincial, national and international bodies and served on editorial boards and review panels.

Professor Deber's current research centres around Canadian health policy. Projects include examination of where nurses work and the factors associated with differential "stickiness" across sub-sectors, what's in and out of the basket of services, and public and private roles in the financing and delivery of health services (with a focus on long term care). She is currently the director of M-THAC (From Medicare to Home and Community): Overtaking the Limits of Publicly-funded Healthcare in Canada, a community alliance health research program funded by the Canadian Institute of Health Research, and will direct a new CIHR Team in Community Care and Health Human Resources. She teaches courses on Canadian politics and health policy, and case studies in Canadian health policy and management.
