As our name implies, health economics is a core component of what we do. The Institute provides economic analysis at both the system level (in broad areas of health-sector management and significant disease burdens such as cancer and mental health) as well as economic evaluation of individual technologies and therapeutic interventions. We study health economics and policy in different systems and strategies to address social determinants of health, and we examine health financing and the impact of incentives. Our Decision Analytic Modelling Unit promotes the use, understanding, and integration of advanced economic modelling techniques to inform health policy and practice.
Among our activities in this area are special projects and the publication of reports, brochures, and books, including our popular IHE in Your Pocket series.
