Centre for Burden of Disease and Cost-effectiveness
Based within the UQ School of Population Health until its disestablishment in 2013, the Centre for Burden of Disease and Cost-Effectiveness (BoDCE) was known as a world-leading institution for research and training in population health measurement ("burden of disease") and economic evaluation ("cost-effectiveness").
The Centre's research is still available through the links below. For further information, please contact us.
Most research is in burden of disease and injury, and cost-effectiveness
The centre's research activities include the following two major inter-related areas:
- Burden of disease and injury
Burden of Disease and Injury projects
- Australian Burden of Disease and Injury study, 2003
- Burden of Disease and Injury study in Indigenous Australians, 2003

Burden of Disease and Injury
The 1999 Victorian and Australian national burden of disease and injury studies provided the first comprehensive overview of health status in Australia in 1996. A second study was completed in 2007 with results for the total Australian population and the Indigenous population (with summary) pertaining to the year 2003.
