The Burden of Disease Epidemiology, Equity and Cost-Effectiveness Programme (BODE³) has an aim to estimate health and wider societal gains, costs, cost-effectiveness and equity impacts of health sector interventions, and build capacity in modelling of health sector interventions. We do this from rich NZ data and a basis of epidemiological methods, intersected with simulation modelling, and with costs and economics layered over the top. We are focused on knowledge gains that also reduce inequalities, and building capacity. BODE³ is a Health Research Council (HRC) funded programme, previously funded from 2010-2015 and renewed for 2016-2021.
