VI ECPD REGIONAL CONFERENCE ON HEALTH ECONOMICS

with the main topic

THE ECONOMIC IMPORTANCE OF THE ACTION AGAINST ANTIMICROBIAL RESISTANCE

(Opatija - Hotel Milenij“, 27-28 September 2019)

 

Considering an increasingly important role of health economics in the decision-making process, as well as still inadequately developed resources in this multidisciplinary field in the health systems of South East Europe, the European Center for Peace and Development UN University for Peace has initiated a series of regional conferences, round tables and meetings for key decision makers in the countries across the Region, aiming to improve and strengthen capacities in this field.

In this regard, we have the pleasure to invite you to take part in the Sixth ECPD Regional Conference on Health Economics in Opatija, 27-28 September 2019. The Conference continues the studying of relevant topics in the field of health care and extends the tradition of gathering health providers, managers and other decision makers in health care systems in SEE and Central Europe countries.

The main theme of this year's Conference is “The Economic Importance of the Action against Antimicrobial Resistance”. Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the major causes of concern in public health, due to significant health and economic consequences. The high variability in the frequency of AMR in the European countries suggests that there are opportunities for improvement, therefore the lessons and experiences should be shared among themselves.

Promoting better hygiene in health care institutions, ending the over-prescription of antibiotics, rapid testing for patients to determine whether they have bacterial or viral infections, delayed antibiotic prescriptions and mass media campaigns are all effective and cost-effective interventions to tackle AMR. Unfortunately, only a minority of European countries have identified the specific funding sources for implementing the national action plans to tackle AMR and defined a monitoring and evaluation process. Investments in public health actions to tackle AMR are still insufficient. The primary objective of this Conference is to bring together clinicians, health managers and health politicians involved and responsible for antibiotic resistance prevention and control. The Conference will give a review of the current situation and future perspecitves in tackling AMR. We expect presentations at the Conference to spread a universal vision of the importance of antimicrobial resistance and what can be done about it. We hope the presentations at the meeting will provide the latest information on how to move from isolated success and best practices in individual hospitals, regions or countries to good standard practices within and between countries.

The Conference will be co-chaired by Prof. Dr. Dušan Keber, Professor of Internal Medicine and an international consultant (former Minister of Health of Slovenia), Prof. Dr. Ana Stavljenić-Rukavina, Vice-Rector of Libertas International University (former Minister of Health of Croatia) and Prof. Dr. Klaus-Dirk Henke, long-standing Head of Department of Public Finance and Health Economics, Technical University in Berlin.
