IX ECPD REGIONAL CONFERENCE ON

HEALTH ECONOMICS

with the main topic

Allocation of SCARCE Resources in Health Care

(Pula/Brioni, 10 -11 May 2024)

 

We have the pleasure of inviting you to take part in the Ninth ECPD Regional Conference on Health Economics, which will be held at the ECPD Regional Center for Development Studies in Pula (Flaciusova 18).

Considering an increasingly important role of health economics in the decision-making process, as well as still inadequately developed resources in this multidisciplinary field in the health systems of South East Europe, the European Center for Peace and Development UN University for Peace has initiated a series of regional conferences, round tables and meetings for key decision makers in the countries across the Region, aiming to improve and strengthen capacities in this field. This year's Conference continues to study relevant topics in the field of health care economics and extends the tradition of gathering health providers, managers and other decision makers in health care systems from the region of South-East and Central Europe.

The topic of this year is the allocation of scarce resources in health care. Demands for all aspects of health care continue to exceed available resources. Policy makers need to make important decisions regarding the use of public funds and specify particular disease areas, population categories and interventions. The problem is that decisions on prioritizing health care needs are complex and multidimensional, while the current decision-making process is based on ad-hoc decisions or decisions based on previous experience, on individual or limited benefit dimensions. Therefore, the resources cannot be used to an optimal extent.

Resource allocation represents a series of activities and decisions that form the basis for prioritizing health care needs: maximizing the health of the population, reducing health inequalities of marginalized or vulnerable groups, and/or responding to crisis situations, while respecting practical and budgetary constraints. At the Conference, these topics will be discussed and current methodological approaches will be presented for the distribution of resources in the field of health care in an efficient, transparent, fair and ethical manner, which gives legitimacy to decisions. In addition to the main topic, other current and relevant issues will be discussed at the Conference.

The Conference will be co-chaired by Prof. Dr. Klaus-Dirk Henke, longstanding head of the Department of Public Finance and Health Economics, Technical University in Berlin, Prof. Dr. Tina Bregant, Angela Boškin Faculty of Health Care, former State Secretary in the Ministry of Health of Slovenia, Prof. Dr. Thomas Lux, Director of Competence Center eHealth, University of Applied Sciences Niederrhein, Germany.
