The state of health economic research in South Africa [Letter to the editor]

Gow, Jeff and Strauss, Michael and Whiteside, Alan (2013) The state of health economic research in South Africa [Letter to the editor]. PharmacoEconomics, 31 (3). pp. 251-253. ISSN 1170-7690


As active researchers in the field of health economics in
South Africa, we believe the content and title of the recent
PharmacoEconomics article 'The state of health economic
research in South Africa: a systematic review' to be
misleading. It greatly overstates what it actually achieves
and is a misuse of the methodology of systematic reviews.
