    Welcome to the Health Economics Unit
     

    The Health Economics Unit (HEU) works to improve the performance of health systems in Sub-Saharan Africa through research in health economics, training, consultancy and capacity-building. The core objective of the HEU are to conduct high quality research in health economics and health systems; to train at the post-graduate level to improve technical research and health systems capacity; to develop capacity in health economics and related health systems research in Africa; and to provide technical support to facilitate the translation of health policies into practical programmes.

    The HEU was established in early 1990 in the School of Public Health and Family Medicine at the University of Cape Town (UCT). The HEU works to improve the performance of health systems through informing health policy and enhancing technical and managerial capacity in sub-Saharan Africa. Its foundation is academic excellence in health economics and related health system issues.


    History

    The development of the Health Economics Unit (HEU) was made possible by the recruitment of a Health Economist (Emeritus Professor Di McIntyre) to work in the School of Public Health and Family Medicine at UCT in the late 1980s. A number of public health specialists (Drs Steve Taylor, William Pick and Max Bachmann) collaborated with Emeritus Prof McIntyre to establish the HEU at the beginning of 1990.

    The unit was initially envisioned as primarily a research organisation, but the urgent need for developing health economics capacity both within South Africa and the African region more generally was soon recognised and training activities were initiated. From modest beginnings of a single full-time health economist and part-time inputs from supportive public health colleagues, the HEU has developed a thriving and diverse research portfolio, substantive postgraduate programmes at the masters and doctoral level and extensive technical support activities.


    Vision

    Our work at the HEU is guided by the following vision:

    The HEU will be a world-class independent authority in health economics, health policy and systems. It will lead in publishing innovative research which addresses priority conceptual and methodological issues in low- and middle- income countries. It will play a key role in global post-graduate training in health economics and offer expert policy advice on relevant issues in sub-Saharan Africa. To achieve this, the HEU will pursue a balance of mainstream and developmental health economics drawing on a strong human resource base with a full range of relevant skills and a diversity of nationalities and backgrounds.


    Objectives

    The four core objectives of the HEU are:

    • To conduct high quality research in health economics, health policy and systems.
    • To train at the post-graduate level to improve technical research and health systems capacity.
    • To develop capacity in health economics and related health systems research in South Africa and in the African region.
    • To provide technical support to facilitate the translation of health policies into practical programmes.


    Principles

    HEU is committed to the following guiding principles:

    • Excellence and independence;
    • Fairness, social responsiveness and accountability in health systems;
    • Respect for its collaborators and stakeholders;
    • Innovative thinking, to ensure its work remains ground-breaking;
    • Transformation in research and learning.

    I am Associate Professor and Head of the Health Economics Division in the School of Public Health and Family Medicine at the University of Cape Town. I have training in economics and health economics. I did my PhD at the LSHTM, and have worked in the field of health economics in South Africa since 1997. My research falls within three areas: economic evaluation of health care interventions, especially in relation to tuberculosis, HIV, cancer and STIs; economic considerations in vaccination, with an emphasis on the economic modelling of new vaccines; and the cost of scaling up health care interventions.

    I have extensive teaching and student supervision experience. I teach Theory and Application of Economic Evaluation in Health Care on the MPH, and Economic Evaluation for Health Care Decision Making on the Postgraduate Diploma in Health Economics. My doctoral students are studying topics including economic evaluation of interventions for prevention of pediatric drug resistant TB, extended cost effectiveness analysis of publicly funded interventions for early detection and treatment of breast cancer, and cost-effectiveness of models of prevention of mother to child transmission of HIV intervention.

    I am a member of the Executive Committee of the Pharmaceutical & Technology Clinical Management Association of South Africa (PTCMA), with a focus on research and education.

    I have served on the WHO Immunization and Vaccines related Implementation Research (IVIR) Advisory Committee. In 2020, I was appointed a member of the Strategic Scientific Advisory Board of the Botnar Research Centre for Child Health (BRCCH) at the University of Basel, Switzerland, which is dedicated to advancing global child and adolescent health.
