Ethical Issues Arising from Economic Evaluations in Public Health
The Centre has recently started to produce a series of short documents introducing the main ethical issues arising from economic evaluations in public health, as well as providing outlines of the key economic concepts used in these analyses.
This series is designed for those in the public health sector and will feature examples relevant to public health.
The first document in this series, presenting the utilitarian logic upon which most economic evaluations are based, is currently in production and we expect to publish it in the spring of 2013.
When it is published, we will be sure to include it in our e-bulletin. For more information or to share your ideas about this series, please contact Olivier Bellefleur
. Meeting and Resources on Population and Public Health Economics
In Janaury 2013, the Centre participated in a 2-day discussion on population and public health economics. The meeting was organized by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research – Institute of Population and Public Health (CIHR – IPPH) and the National Collaborating Centres for Public Health (NCCPH), with the Canadian Population Health Initiative (CPHI) of the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI), and the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC).

One outcome of this meeting is that the Centre will produce an inventory of resources in applied economics for public health in Canada, as well as an annotated bibliography. We will keep you posted here and through our e-Bulletin as to what we find.
