Join CHDS faculty James K. Hammitt and Lisa Robinson on November 2-3, 2017 for a Methods and Case Studies workshop on benefit-cost analysis in global health and development.  Hammitt and Robinson are members of a leadership team, together with Dean Jamison (University of California, San Francisco) and David de Ferranti (Results for Development Institute), of a project to develop reference case guidelines for benefit‐cost analyses, funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

The workshop will be held on November 2-3, 2017 at Harvard’s Joseph B. Martin Center (77 Avenue Louis Pasteur, Boston, MA 02115). The workshop will begin at 8:00 AM on Thursday and end at 12:30 PM on Friday. Hammitt and Robinson announced that Larry Summers will be joining the group for a conversation with Dean Jamison about the role of benefit-cost analysis in global health and development. The workshop will focus on discussion of draft methods papers and case studies and the initial recommendations to support the development of reference case guidance.

The workshop is open to the public at no charge, but pre-registration is required.

For those interested, the project will also be discussed at the December Society for Risk Analysis Annual Meeting at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, VA on Tuesday, December 12, from 10:30 am–12:00 pm, in Salon A.
