“HEALTH ECONOMICS AND PHARMACOECONOMICS: OPPORTUNITIES FOR GERMAN – AFRICAN COOPERATION”

Africa is one of the world’s fastest-growing economic regions. In addition to multinational as well as small and medium-sized international companies active on the African continent, an increasing number of local companies engage in the development, production and marketing of pharmaceutical products, medical de-vices and diagnostics across Africa. There are many examples of successful partnerships between German and African stakeholders.
At this workshop, recognised experts from Europe and Africa will explore potential use and applications of pharmacoeconomic tools for medicines, medical devices and diagnostics in the African context, including Primary Health Care settings. The workshop will emphasise upcoming trends in HTA and the use of the pharmacoeconomic toolkit in light of health systems strengthening towards universal health coverage. The format will provide an opportunity for networking between various stakeholders and for capacity building.
