Modelling healthcare expenditure by disease in OECD countries
March 30, 2023 - 14:00 - 15:30 CET

Organised by: OECD and EUPHA-ECO

During the virtual seminar, we will discuss two recent works on attributing healthcare expenditures to diseases. A specific focus of the discussion will be on the methodological challenges and the policy implications of such cost-of-illness analyses for OECD countries. The University of Melbourne will present a country-level model that has been used in a simulation study achieving SDG 3.4. The OECD Secretariat will outline an AI-based model relying on patient-level data that is used in the OECD microsimulation model for Strategic Public Health Planning for non-communicable diseases (SPHeP-NCD) to assess the cost-effectiveness of prevention interventions. The Secretariats will also discuss the benefits of this project to policymakers and information on how countries can get involved. 

Attendees will have the opportunity to discuss both methodologies and real-world applications and exchange views with academics part of the EUPHA.

International Women’s Day - Health policy and global health crises: why we need feminist intersectional approaches and what to learn from COVID-19?

March 7, 2023 - 19:00 - 20:00 CET

Webinar powered by: EUPHA 

We invite you to join us in celebrating (the evening before) 8 March International Women’s Day and critically reflect on the lessons to be learned from the COVID-19 pandemic. An international group of speakers seeks to highlight policy gaps and discuss how gender inequalities exacerbated in the shadow of a major global health crisis and how they intersect with other inequalities and new migration flows. Why did health policy failed so badly to protect women, minorities, and vulnerable groups, and what role did public health play? The webinar seeks to explore ways to create a ‘new normal’ that is better equipped to protects human rights, equality and equality, and the crucial role of feminist networks and research.

Migrant healthcare workers during the COVID-19 pandemic: why we should worry about health systems and governance
March 14, 2023 - 14:00 - 15:00 CET

Organised by: GLOHRA Project PROTECT, in collaboration with EUPHA Health Workforce Research (EUPHA-HWR) and Public Health, Babeș-Bolyai University, Romania

Chairs: Ellen Kuhlmann and Marius Ungureanu
Hosts: Marius Ungureanu and Monica Brînzac, Babeș-Bolyai University, Romania

Webinar powered by: EUPHA 

Migrant healthcare workers played a crucial role in maintaining healthcare delivery and resilience of the health system during the COVID-19, but were largely absent from pandemic policy, and the literature highlights inequalities and structural racism. This webinar calls for greater attention to migrant HCWs. However, simply adding the migration status is not enough.
We introduce an intersectional health system-based approach. Results from the German PROTECT project will be contrasted with the situation in the United Kingdom and Brazil, where evidence of disadvantages of migrant healthcare workers seem to be strongest. Key stakeholders in the field will comment and add evidence from a health system, management, profession and policy perspective, thus  stimulating critical debate and policy solutions.
