Abstract

The aim of this paper is to give an overview on the development, current status and future challenges of health economics in Hungary. We identified the major challenges during the development of health economics in Hungary. The greatest challenge that health economics faced in the early and mid-1990s was the lack of well-qualified professionals because in Central and Eastern European countries there had not been any relevant trainings before. It was the next major challenge for the Hungarian health care financing system to integrate the results from health economics studies into the decision making processes of public administration, through the development of the legal frame work and institutionalisation health economics. Hopefully, the development of health economics in Hungary over the last 15 years will continue, which is greatly stimulated by hosting the 6th European Conference on Health Economics in Budapest in 2006.
