Event Type: Partner Event

Date: Thursday Jun 22, 2023, 5:30 pm

This is a partner event presented by ANU College of Business & Economics.

In his presentation, Frank will assess the effect of long-run changes in the drugs provided by the PBS on mortality and hospital utilisation in Australia. He will estimate that if the number of PBS drugs had not increased between 1996 and 2013, the number of years of life lost before age 85 in 2019 would have been 21.2 per cent higher than it actually was. Furthermore, he will demonstrate that the 1996-2013 increase in the number of PBS drugs reduced the number of years of life lost before age 85 in 2019 by 359,026.

Frank will show that if the number of PBS drugs had not increased between 1994 and 2011, the number of hospital days in 2019 would have been 10.6 per cent higher than it actually was, and that the 1994-2011 increase in the number of PBS drugs reduced the number of hospital days in 2019 by A$2.48 million.

Budget implications of a crisis: some policy lessons going forward - ONLINE ONLY

Event Type: ESA Event

Date: Wednesday May 31, 2023, 5:30 pm

From: Central Council

What has our experience with COVID-19 taught us about the best ways for government to respond to future crises? How can budget policy best respond? Are some types of interventions a lot more cost-effective than others? What policies could we prepare to quickly roll out to respond to a future crisis (even if we don’t yet know what that crisis will be)? Can we prepare for any differential effects of a crisis on each gender? What steps do we need to take (such as new types of data collection) in order to respond quickly and affordably to a crisis?
