We are a world-leading group of over 50 academics working on a diverse portfolio of health economics research, with work ranging from the development of innovative methods and empirical research, to policy engagement and impact. Members have strong national and international partnerships and a wealth of experience in advising UK and other national governments, international agencies, and organisations.

Overview

Based in the Faculty of Public Health and Policy, the Centre For Health Economics In London (CHIL) acts as the central body for staff and students across the School who study or apply health economics.

The Centre’s vision is forward-looking and emphasises cutting edge methodological development,  rigorous empirical research, and working alongside policy and decision-makers to achieve policy impact.  We seek to improve collaborations among economists and researchers in other disciplines at LSHTM and with research groups and policymakers in the UK and around the world. Centre members’ expertise places them at the forefront in building the capacity of health economists and their policy communities – and embracing respectful collaborations worldwide.

Our teaching programme includes research degrees and multiple masters degree programmes taught in London and through our distance learning programme.

LSHTM economists link to others through IHEA and the UK Health Economics Study Group.

Economic evaluation and priority setting

Overview of theme

The economic evaluation and priority setting group includes over 30 staff members and research degree students from different disciplines including economics, statistics, mathematical modelling and epidemiology. We work in close collaboration with research partners in the UK and several low and middle income countries.

Our work aims to improve health by informing policy, processes and approaches used to allocate resources across health systems in the UK and around the world. Our research draws on strengths in economic data collection, statistical analysis, valuation of health outcomes, and infectious disease modelling.

We value policy impact, and have long established partnerships with a wide range of both global and national policy makers. We regularly support and participate in advisory work, guideline development, national strategic planning and health technology assessment processes.

The theme leads are Anna Vassall and John Cairns.

Areas of active research

We work across a wide range of health topics, addressing both non-communicable and infectious disease burden. We apply and develop methods in the following areas:

  • Improving the statistical analysis of trial and non-trial data
  • Incorporating behaviour, demand and health systems considerations into economic evaluation
  • Designing frameworks for the economic evaluation of multi-sectoral intervention
  • Understanding and estimating costs and resource use
  • Incorporating societal perspective, including the measurement of economic impact
  • Use of capability and well-being methods in global health
  • Incorporating equity in priority settings
  • Evaluation of complex interventions
    • Economic evaluation of a complex intervention to reduce bullying in schools
  • Evaluating disease models in priority setting
    • Cost-effectiveness of population genetic testing for cancer prevention

Policy evaluation

Overview of theme

We aim to improve methods for policy evaluation, drawing heavily on approaches developed in economics, but also from related disciplines such as biostatistics and management science. The group’s expertise is in the development and application of quasi-experimental methods including matching, difference-in-differences, flexible regression, and synthetic control methods. Our focus is on applying these approaches to large-scale observational data to address questions of international policy-relevance in health.

We work closely with policy-makers in many different countries, and their requirements motivate our interests in methods development, which takes place in collaboration with a cross-disciplinary network of methodological experts.

The theme leads are Timothy Powell-Jackson and Richard Grieve.

Areas of active research

  • Investigation of synthetic control methods versus difference in difference estimation
  • Application of instrumental variable approaches for evaluating person-level treatment effects
  • Policy-relevant evaluations including of integrated care initiatives in the UK Value of implementation approaches
  • National evaluation of pay for performance in Brasil using quasi-experimental methods applied to linked administrative datasets
  • Large scale randomised controlled trial of a quality improvement and business intervention in private health facilities in Tanzania
  • Analysis of household scanner data on food and beverage expenditures to understand dietary behaviours and evaluation of likely health related food policy impacts

Economics of health systems and organisations

Overview of theme

The effective design and management of health systems poses many important economics questions, such as:

  • How should we finance health care?
  • What role should the government have in health care provision?
  • How should we regulate private providers?
  • How should we pay health care workers?

Our work involves the use of economic concepts, theories and insights to address these types of dilemmas. We use quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods to understand and analyse specific aspects of health system performance, and to support the design and evaluation of health system strategies and interventions. We study health care markets (e.g. competition and choice); non-market approaches (e.g. planning and regulation); healthcare financing (e.g. purchasing and provider payment), and resource allocation (e.g. rationing mechanisms). We draw on a wide range of economic theories, including principal-agency theory, transaction costs theory, new institutional economics, theory of yardstick competition, and theories of regulation.

Our work encompasses low, middle and high income countries and humanitarian settings. We investigate the variation across these health systems and their contexts, while also striving to identify common insights, and facilitate cross-country learning.

Theme members are also convenors of iHEA’s Special Interest Group on Financing for Universal Health Coverage.

The theme leads are Pauline Allen and Catherine Goodman.

Preferences and behaviour

Overview of theme

Understanding people’s preferences as well as what determines the choices they make is critical for an efficient and effective healthcare system. This theme brings together researchers using classical and behavioural economic techniques to investigate and explain health decisions.

Discrete choice experiments (DCEs) are a method to understand preferences for products and services. They can be used to estimate user valuations and predict uptake prior to implementation. These experiments are being adapted for rapid application within the formative research phase, in order to optimise trials and programming. Their uptake predictions are also being incorporated into cost-effectiveness models, as an improvement on mathematical modelling which has traditionally relied on expert opinion to estimate uptake in projecting the impact of new technologies.

Our group is undertaking DCEs to estimate these parameters in order to improve projections of uptake, and better understand how product attributes such as efficacy affect epidemiological impact and cost-effectiveness directly, and indirectly through increasing attractiveness.

Behavioural economics combines theories from economics and psychology to investigate and understand how people make choices. We are undertaking research that examines how cognitive biases, such as overconfidence, affect decisions made by healthcare providers. We also make use of randomised experiments to study how behavioural interventions can be used to improve quality of care. In addition, we are using it to optimise implementation science research, through changing choice architecture in HIV self-testing.

We are also convenors of iHEA’s Special Interest Group on Health Preference Research.

The theme leads are Fern Terris-Prestholt and Alec Miners.
