Speaker: Richard Smith, Professor of Health Economics and Deputy Pro-Vice Chancellor, University of Exeter Medical School

COVID-19 has now become a devastating reality for most countries around the world. The demand for policy advice and research on a range of issues related to the economics of COVID-19 is growing.  iHEA has launched a “COVID-19 research” discussion group and will be hosting several webinars related to COVID-19 research.

In this webinar, Winnie Yip, the IHEA President, will briefly introduce the iHEA webinar series on the Economics of COVID-19.

Richard Smith will present research he and colleagues have recently undertaken that illustrates the potential impact of COVID-19 on the wider UK economy, both in terms of impacts from the disease itself and the impacts from public reaction and policies introduced, including school closure and wider ‘lockdown’.

Winnie will then facilitate a discussion on Richard’s research, as well as encourage participants to share information on research around the economics of COVID-19 that they have initiated or would like to embark on.

We encourage health economists around the world to join the conversation by participating in the webinar and/or posting your inputs on the COVID-19 research group forum.
