L’utilité de ce genre d’institutions est incontestable. Car le monde moderne est sans cesse confronté à des innovations, médicales ou autres, qui s’appliquent à l’homme ou à son environnement proche. Ce lieu est donc nécessaire pour préparer la matière intellectuelle qui sera ensuite transférée aux citoyens afin que ceux- ci puissent se prononcer quant à la légitimité de ces innovations.

Healthy, Wealthy, and Wise: The Ethics of Health Valuation 

 

8 to 12 June 2020

 

Organizers: Lisa A. Robinson, Nir Eyal, Samia Hurst, and Dan Wikler

 
 

Government agencies and major donors face significant challenges in determining how best to use available resources to improve population health. These decisions may involve issuing regulations, establishing new programs, and allocating funds across existing programs. Conventional methods of economic assessment, such as benefit-cost analysis and cost-effectiveness analysis, inform these decisions. The method selected has significant, complex, and nonobvious ethical implications. Several innovative approaches have also been proposed to replace or supplement conventional methods, and their ethical implications have not been thoroughly investigated and compared. This Summer Academy will explore the ethical dimensions of approaches to economic assessment of health policy. Our insights will support wiser policy choices that improve population health and welfare, as well as their fair distribution, to the greatest extent possible.
