EUPHA publishes e-collection on Health, Public Health and Health Economics

Elaborated by EUPHA Public Health Economics section, our new e-collection in the European Journal of Public Health explores the complex and fascinating field of public health economics.

Some public health professionals or researchers might relate health economics to all those analyses using econometrics or anything related to health costs. Others immediately relate it to economic evaluations only. The opposite is also true: some economists might relate public health mainly to economic evaluations of public health interventions. However, public health (economics) or (public) health economics is much broader than this.

This e-collection walks you through this “plumbing” health economics diagram inside the European Journal of Public Health, finding similarities in both disciplines.
