Curing health care systems | Ellen van de Poel | TEDxErasmusUniversity

The way healthcare is being delivered is broken in many countries. We don’t need new drugs or vaccines. We need to first cure the health care systems that deliver them. Ellen van de Poel brings a different view to health insurance, health care delivery, and health systems because of her research on the financing of health and health care in developing countries. Her insights could impact how we all use and pay for health care.

She is the director of the Rotterdam Global Health Initiative and an associate professor of Health Economics at the Institute of Health Policy and Management at the Erasmus University, Rotterdam.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

Tell the Truth | Aurelien Baillon | TEDxErasmusUniversity

People lie about whom they plan to vote for or about their sexual behavior, for instance when answering surveys. Sometimes this is because they are ashamed of admitting the truth. The talk will show how we can make them tell the truth.

Aurelien Baillon wants to know what people think. He studies how people make decisions, but also what they say and whether we should believe them. He works on new methods called “economic truth serums.” He is an Endowed Professor of Economics of Uncertainty at the Erasmus School of Economics.
