IHEA strives to contribute to the global health economics community and makes many resources publicly available, such as the teaching material repository, live attendance at and recordings of webinars and information on job and other opportunities. We encourage health economists everywhere to become members not only to receive member-specific benefits, but also to support the global health economics community through contributing to funding IHEA’s activities.

Individual Member Benefits

Becoming an IHEA member gives you access to largest global community of health economists.  With over 1,600 members from more than 100 countries, you can engage with and learn from those who are interested in health economics methods and applications in many different country contexts.

IHEA members have the exclusive opportunity to take part in our mentorship program.  The program is designed to match early- to mid-career members with more experienced health economists with similar research interests.  This program provides considerable benefits not just for mentees, but also for mentors. Mentors can help guide their mentees through the early stages of their careers, share the lessons they’ve learned along the way and gain satisfaction by helping someone else achieve success.

As a member, you can join any of IHEA’s Special Interest Groups (SIGs), which provide opportunities for collegial engagement and networking with IHEA members across the world working in the same field. Our SIGs focus on a wide range of specific health economics research issues, as well as teaching and a group dedicated to early career researchers. They provide a space to exchange ideas, disseminate knowledge, and advance your skills.

IHEA members are able to submit proposals to establish new Special Interest Groups (SIGs). SIGs provide a platform for professional interaction around specific health economics topics with researchers in many different countries. SIGs approved by the IHEA Board are provided with: a dedicated page on the website; mechanisms for sharing resources and views; support for regular webinars and other virtual networking events; and opportunities for engagement between SIG members at the biennial congresses.

When you join IHEA, you’ll get access to a substantial discount on our biennial congress registration fees.  The congress is the only global forum for health economists to engage around the latest methodological developments, present recent research findings and explore the implications of this research for health policy and practice, across the full spectrum of health economics issues.  It is the leading venue for networking between researchers, students, industry representatives and policy-makers interested in health economics and to hear from established and emerging leaders in health economics from around the world.

By becoming an IHEA member, you will also have access to a range of other opportunities such as being listed in and having access to the searchable IHEA membership directory; exclusive publication opportunities; and other exclusive benefits that are under development.
