Maternal and child health

Deakin Health Economics

The Economics of maternal and child health research stream at Deakin Health Economics is dedicated to the economic evaluation of maternal and child health interventions, working closely with organisations interested in assessing the cost-effectiveness of their programs.

Our team is involved in a broad range of research areas from pregnancy and postnatal care, through early childhood programs and up to programs for school-aged children. Increasingly, programs in this field of research are conceptualised as community interventions, targeting multiple groups across multiple settings and our economic evaluation methods seek to match this focus of evaluation and design.

Our Economics of maternal and child health research stream leader is Associate Professor Lisa Gold.
