The course does not start as a freestanding course this academic year but can start within a program or a course package. Please contact the department for further information.

About the Course

The course consists of three main parts: 1) Microeconomics and health, 2) macroeconomics and health, and 3) health economic evaluation methods. Within all three parts there will be a focus on high income countries.

The first part comprise basic microeconimics, demand and supply of health and health care, 'adverse selection' and 'moral hazard', the production of health and health care, and financing of health and health care.

The second part comprise basic macroeconomics and the association between macroeconomic variables (i.e. economic growth and development, economic inequity, poverty, economic conditions, and globalization) and health.

The third part comprise health economic evaluation methods, particularly 'cost-benefit' and 'cost-effectiveness' analyses. We regard questions about how economic costs and benefits of health interventions can be measured, how to handle insertainty in health economic evaluations, and how this method may be used as a guide for prioritization.
