HEDS in South Africa

A delegation from HEDS recently visited Johannesburg for a workshop where we presented an overview of our health economics training and research. The workshop was hosted by the Priority Cost Effectiveness Lessons for Health Systems Strengthening (PRICELESS) network based at the School of Public Health in Wits University, who are one of the partners, together with NICE International, in the International Decision Support Initiative (iDSI).

As well as potential collaborations on teaching, research collaborations were also discussed and it is hoped that the two organisations will work together on a range of HTA and Public Health topics.  Simon Dixon, Clara Mukuria, Abu Alshreef and Duncan Gillespie were at the workshop and can be contacted for further information and potential collaborations.
