Australia’s only research centre dedicated to the business and economics of health

The Centre for the Business and Economics of Health (CBEH) conducts research on innovative, effective and cost-effective healthcare solutions and the economic and social benefits of health and healthcare.

The Centre informs policy and practice through a combination of investigator-led and commercial research projects that are designed to find ways to improve health and wellbeing for all Australians.

CBEH was established as a University Centre as the result of a joint initiative of the Faculty of Business, Economics and Law (BEL), the Faculty of Health and Behavioural Sciences (HaBS) and the Mater Research Institute UQ, supported by the Vice-Chancellor and Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research) of the University, and the generous donation of a Chair by the Taylor Family. CBEH provides a high-profile vehicle for health policy leadership, debate, engagement and analysis on all aspects of the business and economics of health.
