2013 Forum

The NIHA Forum will be held from 1 to 2 July and will focus on “Economics, Technology Assessment and Health Policymaking”. Under this theme, we hope to discuss the importance of evidence-based policymaking and how using evidence synthesis, economic evaluation, technology assessment and other policy analysis tools could help better formulate health policies and prioritize healthcare resource use.

 

The year’s Forum is expected to be attended by 70 high-level participants and will include Directors, Deputy Directors of health in the region, academic experts in health policy, technology assessment and regulation, along with key industry representatives. I have attached a flyer with some information and the draft program for your convenience.
