Health economics is a field of study concerned with the connections between health and the resources needed to promote health (e.g., time, people, money and equipment). Because resources are limited, choices need to be made and priorities need to be identified.
By applying economic theories of demand, supply, and social choice, health economics aims to understand the behaviours of decision makers, whether that be individuals, households, health care providers, organizations or governments.
