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.
