Leona Hakkaart studied economics at the Erasmus University Rotterdam from 1984 to 1989. Between 1990 and 1994 she was employed at the Department of Public Health at the Erasmus University Rotterdam. She worked on the first general cost of illness study for the Netherlands and the methodology of measuring production losses from paid and unpaid employment. From 1995 she has been employed at the institute for Medical Technology assessment as a health economist. She has been involved in many cost-of-illness and cost-effectiveness studies for a number of diseases. Furthermore, she developed the Health and Labour Questionnaire (HLQ) a frequently applied tool for measuring production losses due to illness or its treatment in economic evaluations. In 1998 she completed here thesis entitled: 'Societal perspective on the cost of illness'. Since a few years she has specialised in the area of mental health and dermatology. In co-operation with the Trimbos institute she developed the ‘Trimbos and iMTA questionnaire on Costs associated with Psychiatric illness' (TiC-P).
