Economic Evaluation and Public Health Leadership – PRC Experience
There are several types of economic evaluation. This overview aims to: define and describe each type of economic evaluation; and describe the relationship between decision levels and each type of economic evaluation. For example, a cost-benefit analysis showed sugary drink regulation in New York could avoid $3.3 to $13.2 billion (2012 USD) of premature mortality due to chronic disease and conditions.
As with epidemiology, economic evaluations are becoming another cornerstone in the foundation of public health decision making. It is essential for public health leaders to have a general knowledge of economic evaluations contribution to a comprehensive public health decision making process.
