Cost Effectiveness of Interventions to Reduce Alcohol-Related Harm Among Indigenous Australians

 

Overview

This research project aimed to estimate the cost effectiveness of a community-based program to reduce binge drinking among young Indigenous Australians, as well as estimate the cost effectiveness of providing treatment in an Indigenous-specific residential rehabilitation facility.

The project used a healthcare perspective to study a range of interventions targeted at Indigenous Australians using the ACE (Assess the Cost Effectiveness) alcohol model. It was anticipated that the findings of the project would strengthen the evidence base required to develop appropriate and effective Indigenous health policy in Australia, providing policymakers with evidence about a suitable mix of policies for a given set of budget constraints.
