Work Package 8 involves a systematic review, which aims to understand the state of knowledge around the relative social value for child versus adult health, and across children of different ages. The questions being addressed include:
- Is there evidence that the public gives a different weight to the same health gain when received by a child than an adult?
- Does the estimated relative social value of child to adult health differ for extensions of length of life versus improvements in quality of life?
- Does the estimated relative social value of child to adult health vary by research methodology?
