observations
Observations
  • Success of AfHEA (other regional interest)
  • Quality of research from most developing regions improving dramatically
  • Research coming out of developing regions that the developed world needs to take seriously
  • Demand for good solid economic research and outlets to present seems to continue to grow
  • Research is still funding driven (is this good?) … e.g. Obesity is flavour of the month. A lot less HIV-ART research. What next?

2nd AfHEA Conference, Saly Sénégal, March 15, 2011

trends
Trends
  • Massive impending growth in India, China, Brazil
    • Each may choose a different path to health modernization than OECD countries
  • Extensive period of "econometric" intensity seems to be giving way to more institutional, policy-oriented work
  • Less reliance on traditional lagged peer-review literature. Switch to more “just-in-time” policy relevant research
  • Development of large scale real-time data will revolutionize evidence based research.
