Despite the large production of cost-effectiveness data for development programmes in India, little is known about their actual use. Cost-effectiveness analysis can play a big role in India’s health policy decision-making by providing evidence needed to inform efficient allocation of scarce healthcare resources. In this seminar, Denny John will present a case study on the use of economic evidence in systematic reviews and results from a recently published study on ‘cost effectiveness analysis of decentralised care model for multi-drug-resistant tuberculosis in India’.
