The State of Global Health Cost-Effectiveness Analysis


The Center for the Evaluation of Value and Risk in Health at Tufts has announced a webinar on “The State of Global Health Cost-effectiveness Analysis: Insights for Action”. The webinar will be held on Tuesday, September 10th from 12:00PM-1:00PM.

During the webinar, the speakers will discuss how standardized data on cost-effectiveness can assist policymakers with decisions on the most efficient ways to prioritize health spending in low-and middle-income countries. Challenges with the cost-effectiveness literature and areas for improvement will also be addressed. This discussion is particularly relevant after the launch of the Global Health Cost-Effectiveness Analysis (CEA) Registry (link to the Registry below). The Global Health CEA Registry is a repository of all peer-reviewed cost-per-disability-adjusted life years (DALY) studies stratified by methods, cost-per-DALY ratios, and disability weights published since the 1990s. The Registry also contains a DALY calculator that allows the user to convert disease-specific health outcomes (e.g., HIV cases or deaths averted) into DALYs and an open-source model clearinghouse that promotes modelers to share their source code for computer simulation models.

The webinar features the following speakers:

Peter Neumann, Director of CEVR at the Institute for Clinical Research and Health Policy Studies at Tufts Medical Center and Professor of Medicine at Tufts University School of Medicine;

Dan Ollendorf, Director of Value Measurement and Global Health Initiatives at CEVR and Assistant Professor of Medicine at Tufts University School of Medicine;

Kalipso Chalkidou, Director of Global Health Policy and a Senior Fellow at the Center for Global Development.
