Consensus on measuring cost effectiveness in chronic disease prevention, diagnosis and treatment
Date14 March 2014
The Economics of Chronic Diseases (EConDA) project is a large two and a half year study supported by the European Commission Consumers, Health and Food Executive Agency.  The project involves partners from eight European countries: Bulgaria, Finland, Greece, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal and the UK. A major aim of EConDA is to establish a consensus over the best methods for measuring the cost-effectiveness interventions to prevent major chronic diseases, such as coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, chronic kidney disease and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.   
Prior to the consensus meeting we conducted a literature review and interview study with international health economists which acted as a facilitator for discussion at the experts’ consensus meeting.
