About the Cost of Illness study

The main goal of our study is to determine the demands on health care resources caused by disease, age and gender and to demonstrate the importance of the perspective on health expenditure (national versus international). We report our results in six dimensions: health care provider, health care function, source of finance, age, gender and disease.

More information about the methodology used in the Dutch cost of illness study can be found in our draft guidelines for conducting a COI study. These are based on our 2003 COI study and have been commisioned by the OECD:
