DCPN Innovative Health Economics Methods Workshop in Peru


The Disease Control Priorities Network,  with support from the Fogarty International Operational and Health Services Research Training Award in AIDS/TB (ICOHRTA-AIDS/TB) and International Core at the University of Washington Center for AIDS Research, hosted a workshop on innovative methods for health economics at the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia on May 6-7, 2014. The workshop was facilitated by Stéphane Verguet and Zachary Olson, of DCPN, and Jim Khan of the University of California, San Francisco. 

The intensive two-day workshop aimed to prepare experienced researchers to conduct modelled health economic evaluations using extended cost-effectiveness analysis (ECEA) methodologies. The workshop laid the groundwork for the formation of collaborative research teams that will prepare policy-relevant ECEA analyses in the coming months and years. It also provided an opportunity for researchers interested in equity and financial risk protection to network. The workshop was attended by economists and medical doctors from PAHO Peru, the National Institute of Health, Universidad San Marcos, and Universidad del Pacifico.
