The SHEA health economics conference

Gothia Forum is one of the co-organizers when the Swedish Health Economics Association holds its annual health economics conference, SHEA, for two days in March.

The keynote speaker is James Hammitt from Harvard, USA. His lecture addresses the current methodological, ethical and political challenges of health economic evaluations in health care. The keynote lecture on the second day of the conference will be given by Professor Martin Knapp from the London School of Economics & Political Science.

SHEA usually brings together around 150 participants from academia, the public sector and industry. Sessions focus on, among other things, cost-effectiveness studies of treatments and technologies in health care, large econometric evaluations of health-related policies based on national and international registers.
