Mathieu Poirier

Research Associate, Global Strategy Lab
Health Policy PhD Candidate at McMaster University

Mathieu is entering his third year of studies in McMaster University’s Health Policy PhD program. His research focuses on applying innovative health equity metrics across national boundaries to uncover gradients of health throughout Latin America and the Caribbean and examining the impact of health policy on these socially and politically determined inequities. The primary policy instruments of interest are Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) programs.

He has an M.P.H. in global health practice from the University of South Florida, a B.S. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and is Certified in Public Health by the NBPHE. He previously directed neglected tropical disease and vector-borne disease research for the Notre Dame Haiti Program from 2012 to 2014 in Léogâne, Haiti. Prior to that, he completed an internship with PAHO/WHO in La Paz, Bolivia concentrating on health equity analysis and health systems strengthening, and organized health promotion activities after the 2010 cholera epidemic in the Dominican Republic.

He is currently investigating international law's effects on health and its social determinants with a focus on international tobacco production and consumption with the Global Strategy Lab.
