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 (please find a 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, who is the 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, who is the Director of Value Measurement and Global Health Initiatives at CEVR and Assistant Professor of Medicine at Tufts University School of Medicine;

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