Layman's description

The Centre for Health Economics (CHE) is seeking funding to host a series of knowledge transfer activities and to build stronger relationships with international organisations. York health economists have developed leading-edge research on the use of economic evaluation methods (e.g. choice of cost-effectiveness thresholds, principles of cost-effectiveness analysis), which inform international agencies and ministries of health in low- and middle-income countries in ways that are likely to ensure their resource allocation decisions lead to better population health outcomes.
CHE wishes to hold three workshops with key individuals at the World Health Organization, the HIV Modelling Consortium, and the Ministry of Health in Malawi, to explore the nature of policy challenges faced, promote the uptake of leading current economic evaluation methods, and to forge collaborative partnerships to support future research into improving regional public health policy.
