Jane Parry, PhD
Jane is an analyst and writer with multi-sectoral expertise in health, development, and finance. She has extensive experience working with multilateral development agencies, the UN system, and private sector clients.
Clients use her impact studies, thematic knowledge products and publications to advocate for investment and shape public policy on health and development in Asia-Pacific and beyond. Her writing is engaging, impactful, and written with both flair and analytical rigour.
Her multi-sectoral expertise means she situates public health and development issues in the wider economic and public policy context.
