Cambridge Public Health

Health economics cross-cutting theme


Health Economics is the field of study concerned with how scarce resources are allocated both to and within the health care sector in order to inform equitable and efficient decision making.

Health economics also encompasses the broader determinants of health and the behaviour and interaction of individuals, health care providers (both public and private), governments and society.
