Kalipso Chalkidou, 39, is the founding director of NICE International, set up to spread internationally the approach to value for money in medicine pioneered by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence. Born in Greece, she gained her doctorate in molecular biology of prostate cancer from the University of Newcastle. She believes that universal access to healthcare in low and middle income countries can be achieved only by setting priorities rationally through health technology assessment, reinforcing her argument with many examples of misallocation. “But you cannot impose evidence informed policy making,” she admits. “The political will has to be there.”
