Health economics has now firmly ‘come of age’ as a critical component of public health and health systems research globally. This provides much to celebrate, but much to consider in strengthening its relevance and ability to respond to future challenges.
The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine is hosting a conference on June 12, 2014 to reflect on these issues as we celebrate more than 35 years of health economics at the School.
A day of lively debate and discussion will reflect on the development of health economics in the UK and globally, assess its current state, and look ahead to the key questions facing its era of maturity. Speakers include Antony Culyer, Cam Donaldson, John Henderson, Richard Layard, Di McIntyre, Anne Mills, Mark Sculpher and Adam Wagstaff. The full programme is now available.

All you need to do to enter the competition is tell us in one sentence why a knowledge of economics is important in public health. This competition is open to all alumni of the School, and the winners will be announced on Monday 12 May 2014.
