UCT's Health Economics Unit at (HEU) has relaunched their website to provide updates of their latest research, training activities and initiatives designed to develop health economics and policy capacity within institutions across Africa.

"The university's vision about embedding social responsiveness into academic activities is at the heart of much of what we do at the Health Economics Unit," explained Dr Susan Cleary, HEU Director.

"The need to relook at our web presence has become increasingly apparent in the context of current public and policy debates around scaling up antiretroviral treatment and introducing National Health Insurance (NHI)."

"It will serve as a key resource in which to communicate findings from HEU long-term projects, many of which will be wrapped up this year. It will be a valuable tool for academics, students, journalists, government and NGOs."

The new website features a blog posting about NHI, the latest news items and publications and downloadable articles by HEU featured in the media. Interested parties can also sign up for web update alerts.
