The Burden of Disease Epidemiology, Equity and Cost-Effectiveness Programme (BODE³) has an aim to build capacity and academic rigour in New Zealand in the estimation of disease burden, cost-effectiveness and equity impacts of proposed interventions, and undertake a range of such assessments.

It is a Health Research Council (HRC) funded programme, for 2010 to 2015. Major collaborative partners include the University of Queensland and the Ministry of Health.
