Organisation profile

Health economics is about how to allocate finite (“scarce”) resources amongst alternative uses to promote health.  Our aims as a group are to inform decisions about the use of health care resources at local, national and international level and to build capacity and promote the uptake of health economics in healthcare decision making. 

We develop and apply high quality methods in our research as well as training the next generation of health economists through our successful Master of Science and PhD programmes in Health Economics.  Our activities help ensure our health services are sustainable and contribute to improving the health and well-being of patients and the general public.
