    Kateryna Chepynoga wins 1st SSPH+ ScienceFlashTalk in Lugano, 9 June 2017

    We are pleased to announce that Kateryna Chepynoga, PhD student at HEC Lausanne and supervised by SSPH+ Fellow Jürgen Maurer (HEC Lausanne) and Gabriela Flores (WHO), has won the 1st SSPH+ ScienceFlashTalk Award in Lugano on 9 June 2017. Kateryna convinced the SSPH+ faculty with her 3-minute flash talk on "Drivers of not affordable medication for chronic diseases in low- and lower-middle-income countries". Patients of low- and lower-middle-income countries are often not financially protected from health expenditures and purchase medicines out-of-pocket. By decomposing prices of drugs into components (cost of the procurement and mark-ups) Kateryna identifies what makes medicine prices to be not affordable. In particular, she detects price components, which most frequently push patients with chronic diseases into poverty, and estimates to what extent the price regulation policy, applied to these components, may improve the affordability of medicines. The award has been sponsored by the Swiss Academy of Medical Sciences.

    Milo Puhan wins Ig Nobel Prize

    We are happy to announce that our SSPH+ Fellow and Vice-president Milo Puhan, director of the Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Prevention Institute of the University of Zurich, has won the Ig Nobel Prize for demonstrating that regular playing of a didgeridoo is an effective treatment for obstructive sleep apnoea and snoring. Congratulations!

    The Ig Nobel Prizes honor achievements that first make people laugh, and then make them think. The prizes are intended to celebrate the unusual, honor the imaginative — and spur people's interest in science, medicine, and technology. Every year, in a gala ceremony in Boston the IG Nobel Prizes are awarded.
