iHEA is currently seeking nominations for experts in Health Economics to serve on the Scientific Committee (SC) for the 2019 iHEA Congress to be held in Basel.
The Boston Congress in 2017 represented a major change in Congress organization. iHEA is now looking forward to a period of consolidation. The SC comprises a Chair and a Co-Chair and a group of Program Chairs overseeing each of the broad fields of health economics, supported by a Review Panel who will evaluate abstract submissions for the iHEA Congress. Collectively the SC will have research expertise covering the full spectrum of fields within health economics. These broad fields are:
1.Production of health, health behaviors & policy interventions
2.Demand & utilization of health services
3.Supply of health services
4.Organization of health care markets
5.Health care financing & expenditures
6.Economic evaluation of health and care interventions
7.Evaluation of policy, programs and health system performance
While some of the members from the Boston SC will be returning for Basel, the plan is to have a mixture of members with varying tenures to ensure continuity in the operations of the SC while providing opportunities for all members to participate and contribute to the success of the iHEA Congresses. Program Chairs will normally serve for two consecutive Congresses while Review Panel members three Congresses.
The iHEA Board would like to especially encourage mid-career researchers to self-nominate for the SC and final decisions on SC membership will need to accommodate gender and geographic diversity as well as providing adequate coverage of the broad fields. Self-nominations should be submitted online here.
Please note: If you served on the Scientific Committee for the Boston congress, you should not complete this form; you will be contacted directly to find out if you are willing to continue serving on the SC.
Nominations for Program Chairs close on 16 July, 2018 and nominations for the Review Panel close on 1 October, 2018.
