Update and Announcement on AfHEA Transition Process

August 26, 2020

Dear AfHEA Members,

UPDATE AND ANNOUNCEMENT ON AfHEA TRANSITION PROCESS

We trust you are keeping well and safe in these difficult times of Covid-19.

At the Rabat Conference in September 2016, the AfHEA executive was mandated by members to start a process of leadership and governance transition, including the appointment of three deputy executive directors as part of grooming of potential future leadership, renewing most of the membership of the Board of Trustees, and updating other organs and processes of the association. Key aspects of that transition have since been carried out, including the renewal of the Board and some executive positions, and the setting up of a Transition Committee by the Board to oversee the transition sand make detailed proposals for carrying the process out. Three Deputy Executive Directors were appointed by the board (before it was itself renewed), for Capacity Building, Institutional Development and Business Development.

Calling all those teaching health economics in sub-Saharan Africa

an invitation to participate in a survey to identify teaching institutions

Calling all those teaching health economics in sub-Saharan Africa
Calling all those teaching health economics in sub-Saharan Africa

This is a critical time for teaching health economics in sub Saharan Africa. Many countries are journeying towards Universal Health Coverage while transitioning from donor funding, and the COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated the essential convergence between health and behaviors, health financing, health systems and macroeconomics in decision-making and health policy.  The need for local health economists in Africa has never been more acute, but we have very little coordinated knowledge of where teaching health economics is taking place, what is being taught and how many graduates are being produced. This survey seeks to provide these answers and more.

The survey is a unique collaborative effort coordinated by the Health Economics Unit, University of Cape Town and supported by the International Decision Support Initiative (iDSI), the African Health Economics and Policy Association (AfHEA), and the Teaching Helath Economics Special Interest Group of the International Health Economics Association (iHEA).  It aims to generate a clear picture of teaching health economics in sub-Saharan Africa, providing a foundation for collaboration and planning and enabling a collective and locally-driven vision for the future of health economics on the continent. The survey is available in English and French and is aimed at post graduate degree coordinators at institutions in sub-Saharan Africa that are teaching health economics, the survey link is available below.

Completion date for the survey is Wednesday, 17th June 2020
