The NHS uses local health inequality monitoring tools developed by the Centre for Health Economics. Our cutting-edge research has re-engineered health inequality indicators to make them useful for local and national decision makers. More information
We have developed practical methods for using cost-effectiveness analysis (CEA) to quantify and compare the equity impacts of health programmes. These methods provide information about who gains and who loses from health programmes, and the trade-offs that sometimes arise between improving total health and reducing health inequalities.

Other health equity research at CHE includes work on econometric measurement and policy evaluation, the equity impacts of hospital competition, inequality in waiting times, primary care workforce distribution, deliberative process for addressing equity concerns, public preferences for reducing health inequality.
