Professor Miguel Gouveia and Professor Jorge Buescu
It is with great pleasure that we invite you to participate in the next digital conference “The evolution of the epidemic and the years of life lost by the Portuguese”, under the Knowledge@CATÓLICA-LISBON initiative, on June 30th at 5:00 pm.
In this conference we will have, in a first part, the presentation of our guest speaker, Jorge Buescu - Associate Professor at FCUL, on Mathematics, Models and Pandemic, where a brief description of what is a mathematical model for an epidemic will be made, relating it to the data recently observed in Portugal.
The second part of the conference will be presented by Miguel Gouveia - Associate Professor at CATÓLICA-LISBON, and will address the topic of how to measure the effect of the epidemic on population health. The number of deaths is just a starting point. Results will be presented for indicators such as lost life years, or "quality adjusted lost life years". These indicators are best suited to finding the best public policies, in particular the most cost-effective.
