Welcome to the Health Economics Research Unit website. HERU has been at the cutting edge of economic research into health for almost forty years. We pride ourselves on the high quality of our empirical and methodological research. Our research aims to make a real difference both to the effectiveness and delivery of health services and to the health of populations in Scotland and other countries.


HERU is Supported by the Chief Scientists Office (CSO) and the University of Aberdeen and is part of the Institute of Applied Health Sciences (IAHS).
