The Academic Health Economists’ Blog exists to provide an online presence for the discussion of issues and developments in health economics. We provide a place where people can present their views, opinions, ideas, and takes on current affairs from the perspective of health economics. The site has a simple aim; to promote healthy debate in the field, with a sharing of ideas.



Our post categorisations are taken from Wagstaff and Culyer’s (2012) bibliometric analysis of health economics.
