    2nd ISPOR Kenya Chapter Meeting - Invitation
  • Health Technology Assessment (HTA) and Health Economics in Kenya: A Workshop on Status, Prospects, and Options
    A collaboration between ISPOR Kenya Chapter and Departments of Pharmacy, Global Health and Health Services, University of Washington

    The "HTA & Health Economics in Kenya" workshop, held on July 29, 2015 in Fairview Hotel, Nairobi, Kenya, laid grounds for HTA capacity building in Africa. Organized under close collaboration between the ISPOR Kenya Chapter and Prof. Lou Garrison from the Departments of Pharmacy, Global Health and Health Services, University of Washington, the workshop program included presentations on topics, such as:

    • Introduction & Overview of Health Economics and HTA
    • Current Status of HTA and HEOR and Potential in Kenya
    • Examples of HTA Implementation in the Australia, Thailand, UK, and US

    Prof. Garrison and Prof. Joseph Babigumira (also from the University of Washington) led the workshop with presentations by the regional experts in health economics: Dr. Dominic Mogere, Dr. Tim Oketch, and Dr. Shadrack Owando. The workshop resulted in a discussion on the necessary steps towards HTA capacity building in Kenya and a successful implementation of technology in health care service delivery. Among the invited attendees were representatives of key regional institutions: Ministry of Health, Pharmaceutical Society of Kenya, Health Action International-Africa, Division of Malaria Control, The School of Pharmacy-University of Nairobi, Kenya Medical Research Institute, Great Lakes University of Kisumu, National Health Insurance Fund, National Leprosy and Tuberculosis Program.

    “It was a great initiative by ISPOR to bring all stakeholders in health and appraise them on HTA and most importantly for creating a forum for stakeholders to discuss possible ways forward. It was a privilege for me. I am a pharmacist with the Ministry of Health and I currently undertook the University of Nairobi HIV Capacity Building Fellowship Program-Health Economics track, which presented me with this opportunity. I look forward to more similar workshops in the future, especially on participating and charting the way forward towards the establishment of HTA in Kenya as per our National Health Policy. This presents a great opportunity for the ISPOR Kenya Chapter!” Dr. Nancy Mucogo Njeru, Officer, Health Sector Coordination & Intergovernmental Affairs, (HSC & IGA), Ministry of Health, Kenya

    Following the workshop an immediate Technical Working Team was selected from the ISPOR Kenya Chapter members who will be responsible for developing an HTA policy paper. For more information on the group and the project, please email: isporkenya@chapter.com.
