Abstract

In this paper we discuss the prioritisation of healthcare projects where there is a
concern about health inequalities. Our analysis begins with a standard welfare
economic model of healthcare resource allocation and we show how the problem can
be reformulated as one of finding a particular subset of the class of efficient solutions to an implied multiobjective optimization problem. We demonstrate our approach through a worked example of treatment for clinical depression.
