Assessing Cost-Effectiveness of Obesity Prevention Policies in Australia
ACE-Obesity Policy 2018
The current obesity epidemic in Australia and around the globe has significant negative health and economic consequences. Addressing this problem will require a comprehensive societal response, including implementation of a suite of multi-sectoral government policies. Informed government action requires reliable comparative evidence on the costs and benefits of various policy options.
ACE-Obesity Policy is a priority-setting study that aimed to evaluate the economic credentials of a range of obesity prevention policies across multiple sectors and multiple areas of governance.
