ERSA symposium and training workshop: Critical choices around universal health coverage - Economic Research South Africa
In 2012 the South African government embarked on what is anticipated to be a 14-year implementation process for National Health Insurance (NHI) through the launch of a NHI pilot programme in ten districts. In anticipation of the further roll-out of NHI , Economic Research South Africa (ERSA) will host a symposium on 6 February to debate how we plan to achieve universal health coverage in South Africa. The discussion will cover various choices relating to coverage, benefits, governance, institutional frameworks and financing, including financing sources. The symposium will be followed by a training workshop introducing participants to the basic tools of economic evaluations of health care technologies and health policies. The workshop will be led by Katharina Hauck and Ranjeeta Thomas from Imperial College. The first part of this course will focus on a theoretical and practical understanding of impact evaluation approaches along with careful review of resulting evidence. The second part will look at programme evaluation through cost-effectiveness analyses focussing on measuring and modelling outcomes and costs across interventions.
