Health Economics Services
at The Diana, Princess of Wales
HIV Research Foundation

Health economics research focuses on pharmacoeconomics and health services research. Local HIV natural history data has been gathered from Somerset Hospital's outpatient clinics to develop a Markov model of disease progression. This data, together with other local costing information, is being used to model the cost-effectiveness of antiretroviral and prophylaxis strategies for the state medical services.
A pharmacoeconomic consulting service is also offered to pharmaceutical companies, medical aid schemes and other clients on the technical aspects of expenditure modelling and pharmacoeconomic analysis.
