Sanjib Saha, PhD, MPH

Atlantic Fellow at GBHI

Professional Profile
Home Country: Sweden
Profession: Health Economist

Sanjib Saha has been working primarily on conducting research on the healthcare utilisation of people with dementia and their caregivers in Sweden. He has also worked on estimating the cost-effectiveness of different interventions performed in clinical settings.

To maintain and improve the quality of life of the people with dementia, their family members and their caregivers, we need an integrated, effective and cost-effective dementia care policy at the regional, national and global level.

The societal cost of dementia is substantial in Sweden. Saha’s interest is to provide evidence on the cost-effectiveness of different treatment/interventions to the policymakers to facilitate evidence-based decision-making.

As an Atlantic Fellow, Saha wants to learn more about leadership and develop communication skills since the care chain for people with dementia involves many agents. In his spare time, Saha loves playing and watching sports, including badminton, cricket and running. He also likes spending time with family and friends.

Bio: Sanjib Saha holds a master’s degree in Public Health from Karolinska Institute Stockholm, Sweden. After finishing his master’s degree, he started working as a research assistant and then finished a PhD in Public Health with a specialisation in Health Economics from Lund University, Sweden.
