Welcome Note from InaHEA 5th ASM Chair

Welcome Greeting 

It is with much pleasure that we invite you to join us at the next InaHEA 2018 Annual Scientific Meeting to be held October 29th – November 2nd, 2018 at Jakarta, Indonesia.

Prof Budi Hidayat MPPM PhD
InaHEA ASM Chair

The InaHEA 2018 ASM represents a dynamic platform for researchers, academia, agencies, policy-makers, industry professionals, patients and health service providers to inspire and provoke productive discussions about the future role of health economics and econometrics in providing robust evidence to national health policy and/or the use of health technology.

The InaHEA 2018 ASM will be an important event for the Society since it provides three plenary sessions as a common ASM agenda, but in the next ASM it also endows with a platform for the three important sides meetings that will shape future decision-making process in the country and globally.

The next ASM will bring together more than 300 delegates from around the globe (including Asia, Europe, and Afrika) to discuss these latest advances in this constantly evolving field. Revolving around the meeting’s central theme: “Global Health Economics and Econometric: Spiraling the Evidence-to-Action Connection” there are some questions and issues that will be covered at the ASM. These include: where is the uncertainty in evidence for health system decision making? what kinds of health economics and econometrics approaches are currently developed? How to apply such development to generating robust evidence? How can health economics and econometrics research help bridge the gap between evidence and decision-making? What insights can health economics and econometrics gather from the ways in which other disciplines, such as public health, economic, law, think about and deal with different types of and standards for evidence? How do health economics and econometrics need to change to stay relevant in a “hoax” world?

There will be three plenary sessions at which national and international experts will inspire delegates to think beyond the current state of health economics and econometrics to imagine a future when all parts of the evidence-to-action ecosystem work in harmony.
