Marginalised communities

Contact: Paolo Ramponi
 Within Yorkshire and Humber there are several communities who access health care in a different way from the general population. For example prisoners and travellers are two groups who are likely to have different access to health professionals compared with the general population. While there are studies of cost-effectiveness in these populations, there is potential for more work, both applied and methodological, in this area. 

This studentship will focus on evaluating cost-effectiveness of interventions in these marginalised groups. It is anticipated that for these groups, cross sectoral and cross temporal effects are likely to be important. For example, for prisoners maximising health is a key objective but reduction in re-offending (cross sectoral with criminal justice) in the longer term (cross temporal) is also likely to be an important concern.
