Research 

Dr. Juran’s research interest is in building systems to reduce inequalities and vulnerabilities in access to health care, with a particular focus on diseases amenable to surgery. Her research uses geospatial mapping techniques to identify geographical and socioeconomic health inequalities at a global, regional and national level by systematically studying aspects of vulnerabilities and resilience.
