Being part of IHOPE and working at the intersection of healthcare, economics and public policy has been a truly enriching experience. The opportunity to interact, understand and share a workspace with the professionals at LVPEI, IIM and IIPH has enabled me to get a holistic view on research and health economics. During the past year, I have been able to develop a better understanding on the aspects of project conceptualisation and data analytics, thanks to the help and support of my colleagues at IHOPE. Exposure to platforms like eyeSmart, IHOPE Resource Centre, IHOPE learning hub etc have also given me a better insight into the role of technological innovations in healthcare and organisational settings. Congrats to the whole team on IHOPE’s eventful journey so far! Hope we can scale new heights in the future..
