With a mission ‘to increase communication among health economists and foster a higher standard of debate in the application of economics to health and health care systems’, the Health Governance and Finance project (HFG) was well-represented at the recent 2017 iHEA World Congress.
The conference was held from July 7-11 in Boston, Massachusetts and drew in more than 1,600 participants over the three-day span.
HFG had six oral presentations (see below), on topics ranging from measuring technical efficiency of ART provision and developing a health financing strategy in Botswana, to costing the scale-up of viral load testing in Kenya, to costing the integration of FP-HIV services in Tanzania, to the political economy of health reform in Central America, and fiscal space analysis in Nigeria. All presentations were well-attended and generated rich discussion.
