The objective of the EUPHA-section on "Health Economics" is to specify and characterise the specific nature of public-health interventions with respect to economic impact assessments. In particular, the section aims to:

  • clarify the effects of using pharmacoeconomic guidelines, methods & thresholds for public-health interventions;
  • recommend specific public-health economic guidelines and methods (initially thought: discounting, incorporating transmission models of infectious diseases);
  • apply recommendations in case studies in public health, both for infectious and non-infectious diseases (vaccination, screening, education etcetera); and
  • analyse public-health interventions that have been introduced to gain understanding of the implicit thresholds conceived.
