Australasia has led the world in conducting comparable evaluations of public health interventions, through the Assessing Cost Effectiveness (ACE) studies in Australia and the Burden of Disease Epidemiology, Equity and Cost-Effectiveness programme (BODE3) in New Zealand. We have launched in 2019 a world-first online interactive league table that allows researchers, policy makers and other end-users to compare visually the impact (health gains, cost and cost-effectiveness) of interventions across the two countries – with adjustments for population size, inflation and purchasing power parity.

Which is more effective: tobacco cessation or tax? colorectal cancer screening or lung cancer screening among smokers? reducing salt in food or food taxes and subsidies?
