Publications

Since 2008, our staff have published more than 842 peer-review journal articles and 241 books, reports and chapters in edited books. We also work to ensure coverage in non-academic outlets – such as trade papers and magazines and through websites, media releases, presentations  – to ensure we communicate to as wide an audience as possible, particularly in terms of reaching research users and participants. Our work has often been cited in important government and other policy documents.

We are involved in coordinating one peer-review journal, Health Economics, Policy and Law (published by Cambridge University Press), which is informally affiliated with LSE Health. LSE Health also publishes the policy bulletin Eurohealth, which is disseminated to more than 20,000 academics and policy-makers. 

LSE Health, PSSRU and SSCR produce regular outputs providing information on their activities. LSE Health also publishes a successful Working Paper Series in Health Policy and Economics.

The Hidden Cost of Dementia Care in Wales

A new LSE report commissioned by the Alzheimer’s Society reveals the hidden cost of dementia in Wales is estimated at £1.4 billion, an average cost of £31,300 per person each year.

The report, prepared by LSE’s Personal Social Services Research Unit (PSSRU) is the first of its kind to analyse the economic impact that dementia has on Welsh society and was the subject of a panel discussion ‘Can Wales afford to ignore dementia?’ on Tuesday 14 July at the National Assembly for Wales.

Edited by Sherry Merkur, Anna Maresso and David McDaid,

achievements of former Soviet countries with regards to primary care,
specialised and inpatient services, and pharmaceutical care as well as
reforms in Ukraine and challenges to universal coverage in Uzbekistan.

Presidency; Care for older people in Denmark and Norway; Dutch
expectation on out-of-pocket payments; Inequity in long-term care use in
Spain; and Eurohealth Monitor.                     


Latest issue: Health Economics Policy and Law

International trends highlight the confluence of economics, politics and legal considerations in the health policy process. Health Economics, Policy and Law serves as a forum for scholarship on health policy issues from these perspectives, and is of use to academics, policy makers and health care managers and professionals. HEPL is international in scope, publishes both theoretical and applied work, and contains articles on all aspects of health policy. Considerable emphasis is placed on rigorous conceptual development and analysis, and on the presentation of empirical evidence that is relevant to the policy process.
