Welcome to season 2, episode 44 of the Today is the Day Changemakers Podcast.
This week my guest is Dr. Andrea Feigl, Founder and CEO of Health Finance Institute.
Andrea was born and raised in Austria. In her junior year of high school she was one of only two students in Austria chosen to go to United World College. She came to the U.S. and went on to receive her Ph.D in global health from Harvard University.
Dr. Feigl brings extensive leadership experience in academia, the public sector international organizations (WHO, WB, OECD), and the global non-profit sector with her. Andrea's work focuses on health systems financing and governance, universal healthcare, and cost-effectiveness of chronic disease interventions in developing countries. She led the largest worldwide longitudinal analysis of the political, social, and economic determinants of universal healthcare in 196 countries (published in Health Policy). She has further authored several high=level reports, including Development Aid Flows for Chronic Diseases for the Center for Global Development, a background paper on the political economy of universal healthcare for WHO and a leading World Economic Forum/Harvard report on the global economic burden of chronic diseases. This work was featured at the UN High Level Summit on NCD's in 2011.
During this interview we talk about manifesting the things you want to happen in your life. We talk about how the pandemic impacted the opening of Health Finance Institute's first office. Andrea also talks about her passion for dance and what it has given to her personally. This guest has an incredible spirit and truly is working on changemaking in all of the work that she is doing every single day.
Listen in to hear the footprint that Andrea is creating now that she wants to leave behind.
