Conference theme

Why are some policies healthy and others not?

CHSPR's twenty-eighth annual health policy conference will celebrate the career of Canada's Undisciplined Economist, and our very own, Robert G. Evans. We are excited about our amazing line up of speakers.

A founding member of the Centre, Bob Evans is a lifelong leader in academia and an internationally esteemed health economist. His groundbreaking comparative studies of health care systems and funding strategies have shaped policy in Canada and provided insight to governments and health agencies worldwide. A decorated academic, Bob is the recipient of Canada’s highest honour for lifetime achievement, as an Officer of the Order of Canada. He also served as a member of the British Columbia Royal Commission on Health Care and Costs in 1990, and of the National Forum on Health, chaired by the prime minister of Canada, from 1994 to 1997. His canonical works, "Strained Mercy: The Economics of Canadian Health Care" and "Why Are Some People Healthy and Others Not? The Determinants of Health of Populations" are considered classics in the field.
