Economic Analysis of Health Sector Projects -A Review of Issues Methods, and Approaches
AbstractThe paper asserts that project designs and benefit valuation in the health sector are much more complex than in other sectors that traditionally apply economic cost-benefit analysis. The paper discusses the key issues in the economic analysis of health sector projects and then presents possible approaches pertaining to demand analysis, analysis of alternative project designs, project framework analysis, cost-effectiveness analysis, cost-benefits analysis, and project-sustainability analysis.
