Brocher Summer Academy in Global Population Health
27 June - 1 July
Economic assessment informs related decisions by estimating the impact of alternative policies on health and welfare. Different approaches to these assessments have different conceptual underpinnings, however, and different ethical implications. Our goal in this Summer Academy is to explore the comparative advantages and disadvantages of both conventional and innovative assessment methods from an ethical perspective, so that analysts, decision-makers, and other stakeholders are better able to select among these approaches and interpret and use their results.
