Vienna, 23.2. - 24.2.2023

7th ATHEA Conference

ATHEA is the Austrian Health Economics Association

Conference theme: "Looking beyond borders: Global Health Economics"

In most European countries with their highly developed healthcare systems and ageing populations, communicable diseases were of little concern for public health, authorities and researchers compared to their non-communicable counterparts. This changed with the COVID-19 pandemic, which had an impact on societies and health systems world-wide and demonstrated most vividly that health systems do not exist independently of each other. As this year’s general conference theme, we therefore aim to have a look beyond the borders of Europe and see what health economics can contribute to these countries. In order to gain a better understanding of the field, we will organise a thematic stream and invite experts as keynote speakers.

What is the ATHEA?

The Austrian Health Economics Association (ATHEA) is a scientific society under Austrian law. It was founded in 2012 as a platform to promote joint activities and academic exchanges between researchers working in Austria in the field of health care and nursing care economics. Ordinary members can only be persons active in these fields of research.
