Summary In Australia, the prevalence of obesity is highest amongst the most disadvantaged groups. The thesis explored ways of operationalising equity into cost-effectiveness analysis, by firstly analysing the equity impact of a sugar sweetened beverage (SSB) tax in Australia across SEP groups in terms of health and financial effects, and secondly by deriving equity weights as a way of formally incorporating alternative equity positions for socioeconomic groups into economic evaluations.
