Welcome to the Global Health Economics Hub. We are a community of international health researchers working to support health economics research capability and its use within policy in lower-income settings. Supported by the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) funded Thanzi la Onse (Health of All) research programme, and working closely with the East, Central and Southern Africa Health Community, Global Health Economics offers educational and training materials for anyone with an interest in the field of health economics. For more information, please see About us.
The Global Health Economics Hub is currently in a pilot phase. The future of the Hub will be shaped by you, and we want to hear from you about what you would like to see from this platform. We welcome your comments about which health economics topics are most important to you and your setting; and what types of training materials you find most helpful and engaging. You can share your thoughts and ideas with us by completing this short survey.
