Health Economists' Study Group

Conference summary

The Health Economists' Study Group Winter 2018 Meeting will be hosted by the The City Health Economics Centre (CHEC)

The Health Economists’ Study Group (HESG) exists to support and promote  the work of health economists. It was founded in 1972 and is the oldest organisation of its type in health economics and remains one of the largest. It is based in the UK, but this does not restrict its membership and interests. The group organises two HESG meetings per year at which academic and policy relevant papers are discussed. This conference is the HESG Winter Conference 2018.

The conference is intended for health economists rather than more generally for people interested in health economics. Although the group has an academic function – the creation and transmission of knowledge and ideas – its members work in commercial, academic and government settings and its concerns are applied and policy orientated as well as theoretical.
