The Public Health Interventions Cost Effectiveness Database (PHICED) is a database of bibliographic records comprising; National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidance and costing templates, cost-effectiveness studies and decision tools in; alcohol, obesity, physical activity and tobacco. The development of this tool was funded by Health England and forms part of the National Library for Public Health. Information on NICE Guidance and costing templates was obtained from the NICE website. Cost-effectiveness studies were obtained from the NHS Economic Evaluation Database (NHS EED). The PHICED is intended for clinicians and healthcare decision makers who want to know more about the economic and health impacts of different public health programmes.
