Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Statistics
  • Internal medicine
  • Health care

Günther Fink focuses on Environmental health, Developing country, Child development, Public health and Pediatrics. The study incorporates disciplines such as Global health, Health care, Population growth and Infant mortality in addition to Environmental health. His Developing country study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Population ageing, Older population and Gerontology.

In his study, Private sector is inextricably linked to Poverty, which falls within the broad field of Gerontology. Günther Fink combines subjects such as Socioemotional selectivity theory, Early childhood, Confidence interval and Malnutrition with his study of Child development. His Public health study incorporates themes from Malaria, Child mortality and Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.

His most cited work include:

  • Early childhood development coming of age: science through the life course (670 citations)
  • Implications of population ageing for economic growth (316 citations)
  • Fertility, Female Labor Force Participation, and the Demographic Dividend (299 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Statistics
  • Internal medicine
  • Health care
