FUNDISA African Academy of Medicines Development invites scientists and students interested in health economics to its second Pharmacoeconomic Workshop which is co-hosted by the National Department of Health, Pharmacometrics Africa NPC, and the University of Pretoria. Pharmacoeconomic cost-effectiveness considerations and health technology assessments (HTA) play an important role in decision making during clinical medicines development, licencing, market access, pricing and reimbursement. As a result, pharmacoeconomics has become an integral part of decision making in healthcare. Pharmacometrics and pharmacoeconomic modelling play an important role in bridging between clinical phase 3 efficacy data and “real world” effectiveness outcomes. Recognised local and international experts will discuss pharmacoeconomics in the South African and international context. This provides an opportunity for networking between various stakeholders, including academia, industry and the National Department of Health, and for capacity building. This workshop is presented as a satellite to the 53rd Annual Conference of the South African Society for Basic and Clinical Pharmacology (SASBCP) (5-7 October 2019, Pretoria), under the patronage of the PharmaTrain Federation. Financial support is provided by Pharmacometrics Africa NPC.
