The International Health Economics Association was formed to increase communication among health economists, foster a higher standard of debate in the application of economics to health and health care systems, and assist young researchers at the start of their careers.

Call for abstracts: 2021 iHEA World Congress on Health Economics

The International Health Economics Association (iHEA) is invite you to join us virtually in July 2021 for the 14th World Congress on Health Economics, which has the theme of Health Economics in a Time of Global Change. iHEA Congresses are well established as the forum to engage around the latest research findings in health economics from around the world, the implications of this research for health policy and practice, and new methodological developments in the discipline.

Although the 2021 congress will be held virtually, it will be comparable to our usual congresses in terms of session slots and there will be several parallel sessions in each slot.  There will also be an innovative e-poster component to the program.  We would like to encourage health economists to make submissions in the form of an individual abstract or an organized session.Abstract submissions will open on September 14th, 2020 and will close on December 7th, 2020.

Abstract structure

Abstracts should be a maximum of 500 words and should focus on research that is yet to be published. Organized sessions should take the form of an integrated set of 3-4 presentations; the inclusion of one or more formal discussants is encouraged. Proposals for organized sessions should include a description of the session (maximum of 750 words), including how participant discussion will be promoted, as well as a 500 word abstract for each paper that will be presented.

To foster diversity and promote submission of high quality abstracts, each person will be restricted to submitting only two abstracts where they are the presenter.  This could include:two individual abstracts,one individual abstract and one as part of an organized session, or presentations as part of two organized sessions.Abstract submitters will be asked to identify the most relevant health economics subfields to which their research relates.  This allows us to ensure that every submission is reviewed by appropriate experts in those sub-fields and that sessions are organized to include similar topics.

Submissions will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee and the outcomes of the review process will be announced in early March, 2021.  Based on review scores, individual abstract submitters will be offered an oral presentation or an e-poster, which will include a brief recorded presentation of the poster.


Information on the health economics sub-fields and all other aspects of abstract submission is available here. Please carefully review this information before you submit your abstract, as there are some important changes from previous years.
