“It is with deep regret that I learned about the untimely death of Phil this past Monday, 21 March.

Philip Musgrove talks to PAHO Director Dr. Mirta RosesOn behalf of the Pan American Health Organization/World Health Organization (PAHO/WHO) and myself, I would like to express our deepest sympathy to the family.  Phil worked for PAHO for several years as the first Regional Advisor in Health Economics and provided excellent technical support and advice to our Member States.  He made significant contributions to public health, and, specifically, to the field of health economics.  In fact, he was the invited editor of the first special issue on health economics of our journal in 1987.  His work truly made a difference in the Region of the Americas.  For all of us, it was a great privilege to have known Phil, and we shall miss him as a rigorous researcher, teacher, mentor, and editor, but also, on a personal note, as a very witty and gracious colleague.”
