This post summarises a research grant that OHE and Peking University have been awarded from the EuroQol Group Foundation. The funded research project will explore the inconsistent ordering of levels of the EQ-5D-5L value set.
The OHE undertook an analysis of the uptake of medicines in 13 high income countries. The UK perspective on this was published in November 2014 by the ABPI. OHE has been commissioned by LIF, the trade association of the pharmaceutical industry in Sweden, to reanalyse the international comparison of medicines uptake from the Swedish perspective; and the results are available here and on LIF’s website.
