Economic Evaluation in Global Health

Faculty: 

Overview

Find out how to evaluate health interventions for programs in low- and middle-income countries in terms of costs and outcomes through a series of cost analyses. Learn how to estimate healthcare costs, measure health outcomes, and interpret different types of economic evaluations (including cost-minimization analysis, cost-effectiveness analysis, cost-utility analysis, and cost-benefit analysis). In this course, you’ll also learn about modeling methods and analysis tools to help you make economically sound healthcare decisions.

This course is appropriate for health care and public health professionals who want a better understanding of the tools, approaches, and applications of economic evaluation.

EEnrollment Fees:

You can enroll in this course as part of a registered site group or you can apply as an independent participant

If part of a site group, your site coordinator will manage your group's enrollment fee. You may be asked to contribute towards this site fee. 

If an independent participant, you will be invoiced based on details and preferences you note in your application. OECD/LMIC rates are based on your current location.  Invoices are sent soon after the application period is over.

Site Group Enrollment Shipped Certificate (to site coordinator)
OECD Site Groups5-15 people: $199 USD per person; 16-40 people: $3000 USD 
LMIC Site Groups 5-40 people: $1500 USD 

For site groups made up of participants from a high-income country (OECD), the fee is determined by how many people are in your group.  For groups of 16-40 people, the fee is $3000 USD.  However, for smaller groups (OECD), we offer a discounted rate of $199 USD per person.

For site groups made up of participants from a low-middle income country (LMIC) we further discount the site rate down to $1500 USD for groups of at least 5 people (with a cap of 40 people for this course).

For site groups that may have a mix of both LMIC and OECD participants, the fee is based on the LMIC rate (of $1500 USD) plus $199 USD per OECD participant.  However, if it is more economical, a flat rate of $3000 USD is also an option.  Please inquire with us if you have questions about the fees at your site.
