Work Package 5

Health economic analysis and methodological development

The overall research question for this work package is ‘what are the costs and benefits associated with investing in initiatives that facilitate relationships between traditional healers and the formal health care systems to improve access to care for those with SMIs?’

We will conduct primary data collection and analysis specific to the intervention developed in WP3. Our analyses will allow us to (1) generalise our work to interventions that aim to improve access more broadly, which will increase their impact and value to decision-makers, and; (2) inform the development of mental health economics in LMICs and help address the need for capacity-building in this field.
