In 2022, the Global Health Registry formally merged with the Cost-Effectiveness Analysis (CEA) Registry. This site only contains data through 2020 publications. For the most up-to-date data, please visit the new database: https://cear.tuftsmedicalcenter.org/

As part of CEVR’s Global Health Initiative, all available data from cost-per-DALY publications remain free of charge: https://cear.tuftsmedicalcenter.org/registry/download

The Model Clearinghouse on this site is still active and monitored.

The Global Health Cost-Effectiveness Analysis (GH CEA) Registry is a database of cost-effectiveness analysis studies that evaluate a variety of health interventions worldwide. The Registry focuses on interventions designed to mitigate disease burden in countries at various stages of industrial development, using the disability-adjusted life year (DALY) as the primary measure of health. Developed with initial funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Center for the Evaluation of Value and Risk in Health (CEVR) at Tufts Medical Center created and maintains the current database.

The Global Health Cost Effectiveness Analysis (GH CEA) Registry is a free database that compiles research literature on the economic value of global health interventions. Our inclusion criterion for contributing articles is contingent on its application of the “cost-per-DALY-averted” metric, which measures the cost-effectiveness of an intervention.

The GH CEA Registry is a repository of all peer-reviewed cost-per-DALY studies stratified by methods, cost-per-DALY ratios, and disability weights published since the 1990s.

Global health organizations acknowledge the importance of prioritizing limited health care resources, but the question remains: are we spending our money wisely? Cost-effectiveness analysis can help stakeholders gain a better understanding of the return on investment of global health interventions and has the potential to inform smart investments and maximize the impact on population health.
