Burden of Disease Epidemiology, Equity & Cost-Effectiveness Programme (BODE³)

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.

BODE3's Health Intervention League Table (HILT)

The BODE3 Interactive Health Intervention League Table allows you to compare interventions on health gain, cost and cost-effectiveness, for many interventions evaluated by BODE3 in New Zealand, and other New Zealand and Australian evaluations that meet criteria for comparability. It enables researchers and policy-makers to get an informed ‘first impression’ of which health interventions to give further consideration. For more information on how it works, see our Health Intervention League Table blog series.

BODE3's DIET symposium

On September 4th we hosted a full-day symposium on ‘Tackling Diet-related Disease in New Zealand - the need, the evidence, the priorities’. More info, including an overview document of each presentation, is available here.

NZCMS/CT Data Explorer

This Data Explorer allows you to interactively graph Mortality and Cancer incidence data by age, sex, ethnicity, income and education (more data on smoking to be added in the coming months). The graphs are of publication quality and you can also use the tool to download any data that you might need - NZCMS/CT Data Explorer
