26/08/21New regional health economics network for North Wales
This article from MediWales discusses Bangor University and how its health economists will be contributing to the evidence base on the cost effectiveness of public health preventative interventions.
Rhiannon Tudor Edwards is Co-Director of the Centre for Health Economics and Medicines Evaluation (CHEME), part of the Bangor Institute for Health and Medical Research (BIHMR) at the College of Human Sciences
The network will focus on the economic evaluation of primary, secondary and tertiary prevention. The health economists will work in an inter-disciplinary way and where possible at a “systems level” with respect to the “Building Back Fairer” agenda set by Professor Sir Michael Marmot.
