The Global Health Economics Consortium (GHECon) brings together UCSF health economists and colleagues at UC Berkeley and Stanford to support the capacity of national and local jurisdictions to design and deliver efficient, high-quality preventive and treatment health services. GHECon employs a portfolio of health economics methods to:
- Characterize the effectiveness and cost of available interventions
- Design and evaluate interventions based on the principles of behavioral economics
- Support program decisions that advance the efficient allocation of available health resources within the context of local capacity, priorities and values
- Provide guidance on financing and health workforce
- Identify and foster the use of best implementation practices
- Develop and promote improved economic methods
Our audience includes local and national decision-makers, international health officials, funders and other global health economists and professionals.
