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.

Format

This online course has recorded lectures, readings, discussion forums, quizzes, a course project, and problem sets.

You can participate in this course as an independent participant or as part of a site with 5 or more people. Participating as a site group provides a forum for discussing course concepts and applying them to local context and customs. If you are participating independently, the online discussion boards provide a forum for these types of discussion. 

The course is taught in English. Participants should be comfortable with written and spoken English.

Eligibility

To be admitted, you must have a diploma or degree in a health related field or in the social sciences. 

Enrollment 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 the cost.  If an independent participant, you will be invoiced based on details and preferences you note in your application.  Invoices are sent soon after the application period is over.

NOTE: for the July 2020 offering, we have temporarily increased the site cap to 60 participants (normally 40 people). We hope that this is helpful during this global pandemic.
