Abstract Background Having reliable information to make decisions about the allocation of healthcare resources is needed toimprove well-being and quality-of-life of individuals with eating disorders (EDs). EDs are a main concern for health‑care administrators globally, particularly due to the severity of health efects, urgent and complex healthcare needs,and relatively high and long-term healthcare costs. A rigorous assessment of up-to-date health economic evidenceon interventions for EDs is essential for informing decision-making in this area. To date, health economic reviewson this topic lack a comprehensive assessment of the underlying clinical utility, type and amount of resources used,and methodological quality of included economic evaluations. The current review aims to (1) detail the type of costs(direct and indirect), costing approaches, health efects, and cost-efectiveness of interventions for EDs; (2) assess thenature and quality of available evidence to provide meaningful insights into the health economics associated withEDs. Methods All interventions for screening, prevention, treatment, and policy-based approaches for all Diagnosticand Statistics Manual (DSM-IV and DSM-5) listed EDs among children, adolescents, and adults will be included. Arange of study designs will be considered, including randomised controlled trials, panel studies, cohort studies, andquasi-experimental trials. Economic evaluations will consider key outcomes, including type of resources used (timeand valued in a currency), costs (direct and indirect), costing approach, health efects (clinical and quality-of-life),cost-efectiveness, economic summaries used, and reporting and quality assessments. Fifteen general academic andfeld-specifc (psychology and economics) databases will be searched using subject headings and keywords thatconsolidate costs, health efects, cost-efectiveness and EDs. Quality of included clinical studies will be assessed usingrisk-of-bias tools. Reporting and quality of the economic studies will be assessed using the widely accepted Consoli‑dated Health Economic Evaluation Reporting Standards and Quality of Health Economic Studies frameworks, withfndings of the review presented in tables and narratively.
