Space available! Starts Monday, June 23! Global Health Economics (G H 590 B) – 3 credits June 23 – July 11, MTW 2-4:50 pm, Th 2-3:20 SLN: 11595 Instructors: Stephane Verguet, Asst Professor, Global Health; Senior Health Economist, Disease Control Priorities Network Joseph Babigumira, Asst Professor, Global Health This course introduces students to key topics in health economics, particularly as they relate to low- and middle-income countries. The course covers three main areas: * Economic evaluation of health interventions, policies and platforms; cost-effectiveness analysis * Health, poverty, and development * Performance, efficiency and finance The course emphasizes cost-effectiveness analysis and include a wide range of methods, so that non-health economist students become self-sufficient in the use and interpretation of cost-effectiveness assessment tools. We recommend that students enrolled in this course have an understanding of basic microeconomics principles (i.e. consumer demand, production, resource allocation, government intervention), as well as interest in understanding of the social, political, and economic determinants of health in low- and middle-income countries. Undergrads welcome with instructor approval. Questions? Please contact Stephane Verguet (verguet@uw.edverguet@uw.ed>)
