Health Economics has received increasing attention from Portuguese academics, practitioners, politicians and policy-makers, leading to a rise in the production of research in this area, and in the number of discussions, policies and programs that are informed by Health Economics. The discipline played an important role in informing decision-making during COVID-19 and remains an essential tool in facing current societal challenges such as the sustainability of the Portuguese National Health Service (NHS).
APES conferences have sought to be a space for debate and presentation of research in Health Economics produced both in academic institutions and professional organizations of the health sector. These conferences are also a space for networking and co-creation, where new ideas and collaborations are discussed, excelling the contributions of Health Economics to the Portuguese health system and society.
The 18th Portuguese National Conference (CNES) on Health Economics ensures the continuity of this forum. This edition includes a new graphic identity and some innovations to the program (more information available soon). Furthermore, the organizing committee is motivated to reach out to more participants and bring together a diverse audience, including participants from inside and outside Academia, and those working in disciplines related to Health Economics.
About 80 different papers will be presented, and there will also be two keynote speakers, a panel for early career researchers and the award ceremony of the Pedro Pita Barros Award. We expect more than two hundred participants, including researchers, managers and policymakers, physicians, pharmacists, nurses and other healthcare professionals.
