Converge3 is a policy research centre that focuses on integrating health, economic and equity evidence to inform policy.
- Provide evidence to health system stakeholders when considering different health-related policy options, principally by comparing the value of different policy options by examining their cost-benefit, cost-effectiveness, or budget impact, and the impact of different policy options on equity through health equity impact analysis, distributional modelling, and other techniques
- Identify policy areas where further research is needed and sharing these policy areas with research groups and other stakeholders
- Provide a forum and other opportunities for reviewing evidence on the health, economic and equity impacts of relevant policy options with stakeholders
- Help health system stakeholders develop/build capacity to use cost-benefit and equity analyses in the development of policy
