On Friday, November 21 three DCP3 Secretariat staff members presented at the 2nd Annual Global Health Economics Colloquium at the University of California, San Francisco. Drs. Carol Levin and Stephane Verguet led a panel discussion on cost-effectiveness analysis, introducing DCP3's extended cost-effectiveness analysis method.
Additionally, Dr. Dean Jamison joined Dr. Levin in leading a workshop on "Pursuing Global Health 2035," with a focus on financing and costing. Drs. Jamison and Levin, along with other workshop facilitators, described the importance and challenges of their respective topics. Participants divided into small groups to discuss potential research strategies for these topics. A product of the breakout sessions was a list of research ideas, opportunities, and priorities for global health financing, costing, behavioral economics, and efficiency metrics.
Additional event topics included:
- Investing in the flight against NCDs
- The behavioral economics toolkit
