Introducing the SPHeP Models
Our models produce evidence that can guide policy decisions on how to ensure that resources spent on public health policy actions will produce the greatest health outcomes and economic benefits. They are designed to generate data on how to prevent, manage and control key public health threats. This includes the vast majority of non-communicable diseases, injuries and mental health problems, as well as emerging threats in the field of communicable diseases.
The OECD has developed two advanced system-modelling tools to cover all the areas of public health:
OECD work covers more than 50 countries - all the 37 OECD member countries, the other non-OECD EU and G20 countries, as well as other key partners of the OECD - accounting for more than 4.7 billion people (over 60% of the world's population) and nearly 80% of the world economy. The models can easily be adapted to cover any country in the world.
The models help policy-makers respond to the following questions:
