The Society for Benefit-Cost Analysis March 2019 meeting in Washington, D.C. will highlight the results of the benefit-cost analysis reference case guidance project. This guidance is applicable to immunization and other policies in low- and middle-income countries. Dean Jamison, a member of the project Leadership team, will give a plenary address, which will be followed by a reception sponsored by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Center for Health Decision Science, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. The conference will also feature a two part session in which key project contributors will illustrate the application of the guidance to a series of case studies and discuss future research needs.
