Marcia Weaver, PhD is an economist who leads the Cost-Effectiveness research team at UW’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation. Recently, she was Principal Investigator for the Integrated Infectious Disease Capacity Building Evaluation (IDCAP), which was awarded to Accordia Global Health Foundation by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. IDCAP was a cluster randomized trial implemented by the Infectious Diseases Institute in Uganda with the goal of evaluating the cost- effectiveness of two methods to build capacity among mid-level health practitioners for the treatment and prevention of HIV, malaria, pneumonia and tuberculosis. In the United States, Professor Weaver has published on cost-effectiveness of interventions for people with HIV and chronic mental illness and substance abuse as part of the ‘‘HIV/AIDS Treatment Adherence, Health Outcomes and Cost Study,” and on a joint campaign to promote influenza and pneumococcal vaccines.
