Siebente ATHEA Konferenz

Looking beyond borders: Global Health Economics
Wien, 23./24. Februar 2023

In most European countries with their highly developed healthcare systems and ageing populations, communicable diseases were of little concern for public health, authorities and researchers compared to their non-communicable counterparts. This changed with the COVID-19 pandemic, which had an impact on societies and health systems world-wide and demonstrated most vividly that health systems do not exist independently of each other. As this year’s general conference theme, we therefore aim to have a look beyond the borders of Europe and see what health economics can contribute to these countries. In order to gain a better understanding of the field, we will organise a thematic stream and invite experts as keynote speakers:

Janina Steinert is Professor of Global Health at the Technical University of Munich’s School of Governance and Research Associate at the University of Oxford

Marc Suhrcke Professor of Global Health Economics at the University of York and Senior Researcher at the Luxembourg Institute for Socio-Economic Research (tbc)

As in previous years, submissions for presentation are welcome in all fields of health economics and health policy, including long-term care, and are not restricted to the conference topic.
