Greetings from all of us in the Health Economics Unit (HEU) to all our colleagues in Australia and around the world! The July Issue of the Health Economics Unit Newsletter 2021 is now available online . In this newsletter we highlight some of our recent achievements and the exciting programme of work we have planned forward.

Whilst surviving another COVID19 lockdown, and continuing to work largely from home, we are making an impact on policy and practice and substantial research contributions nationally and internationally. The Unit will be stepping up their involvement in health technology assessment with state and federal governments which will be another opportunity for our team to directly input into policy decisions.  And we are publishing more than ever, in high impact journals. To find out more, please read the newsletter here  . Here are some of the highlights in this issue:
