Centre for Business and Economics of Health

The Centre for Business and Economics of Health (CBEH) completes vital research on innovative, effective and cost-effective health care solutions and the economic and social benefits of health and health care.

CBEH informs policy and practice through a combination of investigator-led and commercial research projects that are designed to find ways to improve health and wellbeing for all Australians.

CBEH was established as a University Centre as the result of a joint initiative of the Faculty of Business, Economics and Law (BEL), the Faculty of Health and Behavioural Sciences (HaBS) and the Mater Research Institute UQ, supported by the Vice-Chancellor and Deputy Vice Chancellor-Research of the university. CBEH provides a high profile vehicle for health policy leadership, debate, engagement and analysis on all aspects of the business and economics of health.
