Estimation of long-term COVID-19 health state utility values

After acute COVID-19 infection, long-term physical and psychological effects may persist in some patients. These ongoing symptoms can adversely affect day-to-day living and may require ongoing support.

This research project is examining the long-term health-related quality of life for individuals with confirmed COVID-19 diagnoses, as compared to those who were not infected with COVID-19. The project will contribute to the estimation of the benefits of COVID-19 immunization programs, and is carried out in partnership with public health economists at the Institute of Health Economics (IHE).
