Health Economics At Lancaster (HEAL) research group

Health Economics At Lancaster (HEAL) is a research group based at Lancaster University. HEAL is based within the Division of Health Research in the Faculty of Health and Medicine and has strong collaborative links with the Department of Economics (Lancaster University Management School).

The primary objectives of HEAL are the development and application of quantitative research methods capable of informing health policy-making through empirical evidence and contributing to the academic and policy debate. The work undertaken by HEAL aims at having an impact on people's wellbeing and society as a whole.

Current areas of research:

  • efficiency and productivity measurement
  • economic determinants of health
  • quality of life
  • health econometrics
  • economic evaluation of interventions
  • the economics of prevention
  • primary and public health
  • health behaviours
  • health economics applied in less developed and middle income countries

Forthcoming events

HEAL will host the Health Economists' Study Group (HESG) conference in June 2015. Details of the conference and registration forms will appear soon.
