The German Society for Health Economics (dggö)

The German Society for Health Economics (dggö) was founded on 17 October 2008 by 17 university professors. The Society serves to support scientific and research work, as well as scientific political consultation in the area of health economics.

The work of the Society also includes organising scientific functions and research projects and awarding prizes and honours. There is an annual meeting every spring.

The Society has taken on the task of publicly promulgating knowledge of health economics and of presenting this knowledge to parliaments and governments. The Society is in close contact with the relevant foreign and international scientific societies.


Membership includes subscriptions to the European Journal of Health Economics and the Journal of Health Economics and Quality Management [Zeitschrift für Gesundheitsökonomie und Qualitätsmanagement]. For additional information please refer to the dggö homepage or contact us directly at:
