Programs that affect intergenerational health and wellbeing may improve outcomes across the life course. Determining the cost-effectiveness of these programs is essential to support equitable and effective funding. Economic evaluations need to provide robust evidence of costs and effects, and methods need to be fit-for-purpose. The aim of this thesis was to explore the economic analysis of two types of interventions to improve intergenerational health and wellbeing, and appropriate economic evaluation methods. The studies in this thesis advance our knowledge in economic analysis in health and social care program areas.
