Distributional cost-effectiveness analysis

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.
