Debra Efroymson is Regional Director of the Canadian NGO HealthBridge and advisor to Work for a Better Bangladesh Trust and the Institute of Wellbeing. Debra has lived and worked in Asia since 1994. She has written about and spoken extensively on the issues of tobacco control, sexuality and reproductive health, urban planning, transport policy, and economics.
In her book Beyond Apologies: Defining and Achieving an Economics of Wellbeing, she addresses thirteen major myths about economics, including that economic growth is vital and that GDP says something meaningful about people’s wellbeing. In addition to busting each myth, she provides suggestions for a better way to look at each issue and ideas on activism. The book draws on her many years of research as well as personal experience guiding policy-oriented research and advocacy across Latin America, Africa and Asia.
