Health Economists' Study Group Conference

The Centre for Health Economics in London (CHiL) is looking forward to hosting Winter 2021 Health Economists’ Study Group (HESG). HESG is the UK health economics association. The meeting will take place between Wednesday 6th January and Friday 8th January, and due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, will take place virtually.

The HESG meeting offers a unique opportunity for health economists with the UK, and their collaborators overseas to engage in-depth discussion of early stage health economics research. Group meetings have a distinctive style and feel, attempting to maintain a study group atmosphere despite large numbers. All papers are pre-circulated and discussed in hour-long sessions using discussants rather than author presentations. Further information about HESG can be found on

Despite the virtual nature of the meeting, as much of the traditional HESG approach will be retained as is possible.


Cost for registration is £50 for members and £80 for non-members.  Membership can be obtained by visiting the HESG website: . Membership costs £15.


Registration has been extended until the 5th of January, 23:59pm
