Welcome

Health economics has emerged over the past three decades as a major branch of economics that has enabled academicians of both developed and developing countries to influence the way we think about the determinants of health, and how we approach the organization and delivery of health care. The Institute of Health Economics (IHE), University of Dhaka, pioneered the development of health economics in Bangladesh in 1998, which is the only health economics teaching and research institute in South-Asia. IHE operates across all areas of the discipline, with a particular emphasis on methodological thinking and high policy impact through offering short courses/ trainings and different academic degree programs. It is known for its quality education and also for its work in health status measurement, performance measurement and productivity, health care financing, economic evaluation of alternative healthcare programs and treatment methods, measurement of burden of diseases, and econometric methodology. IHE offers the following academic programs.
