Among over 200 research presentations, Dr Yashika Chugh got the first prize, while Dr Jyoti Dixit settled for third prize for their outstanding research.

With over 350 participants from 44 countries, the conference is a global forum for sharing the latest knowledge and insights in the field of health economics and cost-effectiveness analysis.

Dr Chugh, a research scholar at the Department of Community Medicine and School of Public Health, was awarded the Best Oral Presentation for her research work on “Estimation for Cost-effectiveness Threshold for India”.
