If you have a question about this talk, please contact Signe Wulund.

Does tobacco tax gain health, reduce health inequalities and save costs in the health system? And how far into the future do these gains and savings occur?

Do food taxes and subsidies gain health and save costs? And how reliable is such modelling?

This address these questions, presenting results from a tobacco tax multistate lifetable model, and presenting preliminary findings – and in particular methodological challenges – for modelling food taxes and subsidies. The presentation will be of interest to:

  • Those with a substantive interest in policy impacts.
  • Epidemiologists, economist and modelers with an interest in ‘how do I model it?’
