Specialists in modelling non-communicable diseases

Tackling population health challenges means asking big questions, such as:

What impact would a tax on sugary drinks have on reducing obesity over the next 20 years?
How can you look 10 to 20 years ahead to understand the impact of a new drug on its users and your revenue stream?
How should you plan for changing levels of chronic disease caused by climate change?
What impact will different levels of air quality have on healthcare costs between now and 2050?
How can you boost a nation’s health with targeted help at different life stages?

And how do you even know which are the right questions to ask?

That’s where we can help.
