Beverley Essue is an associate professor at the Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health. As a global health systems researcher and health economist, her work focuses on strengthening financial risk protection and advancing equity and gender equality in global health systems. 

As one of nine recipients of the Black Research Network’s IGNITE grant, Essue will work alongside the Dr. Borna Meisami Commemorative Foundation to help racialized survivors of intimate partner violence (IPV) regain confidence and economic stability. The project will map the health and non-health outcomes associated with providing culturally appropriate care to IPV survivors, starting with dental care. 

Essue holds a Visiting Scientist appointment at the Institute for the Advanced Study of the Americas at the University of Miami. She is also an Honorary Senior Fellow at the George Institute for Global Health (India).  

In 2020, Essue was recognized by the Canadian Association of Global Health for her accomplishments in the field.
