SHORT COURSE IN APPLIED VACCINE ECONOMICS
Deadline: 13 October 2017
PRICELESS in the Wits School of Public Health (SPH) is organizing a series of short courses in Vaccine Economics and Financing. This course aims to build technical capacity of policy makers in low and middle income countries in vaccine economics and sensitize health policy makers to the use of economic tools in decision-making.
Care planners and decision-makers from the health ministries, as well as technical experts and all those interested in understanding the application of economic evaluation in allocating resources within immunization and health care programs are invited to attend this course.
The course will run from the 11 to 13 November 2017 at SPH. A limited number of grants, funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, are available to cover attendance fees, flights and accommodation of participants from countries within the southern African region. These grants are targeted at current decision-makers in EPI programs, National Immunization Technical Advisory Groups (NITAG) and partners.
Funded participants would ideally be familiar with the basic use of Microsoft Excel and have some experience working on planning, managing or budgeting for health and immunization programmes. Please send a recent CV to Winfrida.Mdewa@wits.ac.za if you wish to be considered for the attendance grant and to request a registration form. Email the completed form to Aarika.Sing@wits.ac.za by 13 October 2017.
