The Criteria Network of the Social Protection and Health Division presented the latest in a series of webinars on the explicit establishment of health priorities during a health and social crisis such as the COVID-19 pandemic. COVID-19, like all health problems, requires decision-making that involves trade-offs and, therefore, requires policymakers to consider the evidence on both the health of the population as well as their economic well-being. The range of analytical tools provided by the field of health economics could be applied more broadly to inform the response and management of Covid-19. However, it is necessary to highlight where adaptations may be necessary for them to be really useful in a crisis context. In this webinar, a panel of renowned experts discussed the use of health technology assessments and other forms of health value assessment during a pandemic.
USE OF ECONOMIC EVIDENCE IN PUBLIC HEALTH DECISION MAKING
Most health services around the world are devoting substantial amounts of effort to combat the pandemic and reallocating significant portions of their physical, human, and financial resources to do so. However, when making prioritization decisions and deciding how to allocate scarce resources, it is necessary to take into account what may happen to essential services. Understanding the magnitude of the effects of decisions not only on COVID-19 but also on all other essential services must be an integral part of making informed decisions now in the context of COVID-19, but also in the context of any future pandemic. To talk about the subject, we were joined in this webinar by three renowned experts, Dr. Virginia Camacho, Dr. Mark Lawler, and Dr. Y-Ling Chi.
