First first day of the meeting will be devoted to diabetes simulation modelling and will include an Asian-focused simulation modelling challenge. The second day will have a broader focus and abstract and panel sessions covering all aspects of health economics as well as aspects of medical decision-making such as risk communication, the process for submitting abstracts is outlined here. This will be one of the first physical health economics conferences in Asia after the pandemic and will give delegates a chance to strengthen networks and be exposed to a wide range of new developments in both health economics and simulation modelling. 


The meeting will include a combination of:

     • set Mt Hood style challenges are that undertaken by groups who have developed simulation models;

     • presentations by groups simulation models or undertaking related health economic work;

     • abstract sessions covering health economics, simulation modelling and decision science.
