Summary:EQUIPT is a comparative effectiveness research (CER) project in tobacco control that brings together expertise from multiple disciplines and aims to provide policy makers and wider stakeholders with bespoke information about the economic and wider returns that investing in evidence-based tobacco control including smoking cessation agendas can generate.
  • To co-create return on investment (ROI) models in four ‘sample’ EU countries (Germany, Hungary, the Netherlands and Spain), adapting from existing UK ROI model
  • To compare the ROI results across sample countries to inform relative cost-effectiveness of tobacco control
  • To transfer policy recommendations to other EU countries not included in the sample
  • Model transfer under surveillance and support from the cooperation partners
  • Stakeholder interviews
  • Parametrization of the model
  • Validation of the model
  • Model run in the German context
  • Cost-effectiveness evaluation of current and prospective German smoking cessation interventions
  • Evidence generation to support decision makers
