One of the strategic approaches of the IRAPP is the economic evaluation of a wide range of technologies used in clinical and health services. This is based on a double objective: to provide applied and relevant research for policies, while methods to increase the rigor and relevance of these studies are developed and perfected. This strategy is highly significant since economic evaluation holds an increasingly influential role in international and national policies on the adoption and use of healthcare resources.
In the same way, the use of applied microeconomics is fundamental in terms of the evaluation of public policies since it introduces the main methods currently used to assess programmes. Linking the assessment of a programme to economic theory is the key element to ensure you can undertake an assessment of the impact of public policies from an economic point of view. This analysis of their impact can involve an economic or applied micro-econometric assessment or a combination of both types of analysis.
Health Economics studies the behavior of individuals in front of alternative decisions that affect the health of society, taking into account the allocation of scarce resources.
