Health Economics Unit

We use health economics research and training to support national and international improvements in health and health equity

The Health Economics Unit undertakes a range of health economics work, including economic evaluation, measuring and valuing health and wellbeing, health systems research, economic modelling and risk prediction, health inequality, and methodological research. Our projects have informed policy-making decisions in a range of areas, at State, Commonwealth and International levels. We work within the Centre for Health Policy at the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health, and form part of the wider University of Melbourne Health Economics Group.
