Eran Bendavid is an infectious diseases physician, an Associate Professor of Medicine in the Division of General Internal Medicine, and a Stanford Health Policy affiliate.

He explores how decisions about foreign assistance for health are made, and how those decisions affect the health of those whom assistance aims to serve. Dr. Bendavid is also a disease modeler and uses this skill to explore issues of resource allocation in low and middle-income countries with cost-effectiveness analyses.
His recent research projects include an impact evaluation of the US assistance program for HIV in Africa, and an exploration of the association between drug prices, aid, and health outcomes in countries heavily affected by HIV.
