On 24 July 2015, CHE hosted a full day’s training event for the 2015 cohort of Health Fellows, accepted onto the prestigious Overseas Development Institute’s (ODI) Fellowship Scheme. The post-graduate economists and statisticians will soon be working in the very heart of Ministries of Health in Haiti, Liberia, Malawi, Mozambique, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, Thailand, and Zanzibar. They were joined by seven economists from the ODI and its Centre for Aid and Public Expenditure (CAPE).
Attendees were treated to presentations delivered by Maria Goddard, Luigi Siciliani, Karl Claxton, Jessica Ochalek, Miqdad Asaria, and Ryota Nakamura, as well as Francis Ruiz and Laura Morris from NICE International. The presentations provided an introduction to the key themes and topics in health economics which will be used by the Health Fellows to aid them in their new roles.
CHE would like to thank Robin Sherbourne at the ODI and Paul Revill for his support with organising this event, and wish all of the 2015 Health Fellows the very best in their forthcoming placements.
