Using Health Economics To Strengthen Ties Between Evidence Policy And Practice In Chronic Disease

Grant number: 571372 | Funding period: 2012 - 2013



There is a major shortage of researchers with health economics expertise in Australia. This grant will provide training and development for a team of health economists to research chronic diseases covering issues such as: What is the value for money from investment in different treatments? How do such diseases affect the economic circumstances of families? How do we ensure that strategies to address illness work in practice and can be sustained? How do these issues get put on the policy agenda?
