November 2015

NICE International supported Dr Miqdad Asaria, Research Fellow at the Centre for Health Economics, University of York to travel to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia from 21-27 November 2015.

Dr Asaria conducted a series of meetings with colleagues in Ethiopia, including from the Ethiopian Public Health Institute (EPHI), Overseas Development Institute, the Clinton Health Access Initiative, and other senior academics. In addition, Dr Asaria presented two 90-minute sessions on universal health care and the roles of economic evaluation and health inequality analysis at a workshop hosted by EPHI and the EVIDENT network, which involved policy makers from Ethiopia and the region. The visit was part of a long-term engagement strategy with academics and policy makers in Ethiopia involving NICE International partners and will contribute to on-going work in the country.
