Applications are due no later than 13 December 2019.
The Brocher Summer Academy in Global Population Health is a 5-day invitation-only working conference held biannually in Hermance, Switzerland. The next Academy will be held on June 8 - 12, 2020. It addresses ethical issues arising when choosing among metrics for evaluating the benefits and costs of interventions that substantially affect public health. Participants will consider both conventional and innovative approaches that estimate costs and benefits using the same metric, including monetary or nonmonetary measures. Our goal is to achieve an understanding of the ethical trade-offs that accompany the choice among these alternatives. The agenda features 15 distinguished scholars; John Broome will deliver the Brocher Lecture. A more detailed description of the Academy and the full list of speakers is available here.
