Economic evaluation of two alcohol interventions in an Indigenous community

 

Overview

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

The findings of the project will strengthen the evidence base required to develop appropriate and effective Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health policy in Australia. It will also provide policymakers with evidence about a suitable mix of policies for a given set of budget constraints.
