Title: The Economics of Malaria Control Interventions
Themes: Evidence on neglected research priorities
Authors: Bradley, David; Goodman, Catherine; Hanson, Kara; Lines, Jo; Meek, Sylvia; Mills, Anne
Keywords: analysis, causes, control, coverage, economics, interventions, malaria, technologies
Year: 2004 Pages: 73
Abstract:
Despite the availability of effective and cost-effective interventions for prevention and treatment of malaria, coverage remains low. This publication, a companion volume to Economic Analysis of Malaria Control in sub-Saharan Africa, uses the tools of economics to review knowledge on the underlying causes of this low coverage, and to identify strategies to increase the uptake of existing effective interventions, and ensure maximum impact from new technologies.

Title: Economic Analysis of Malaria Control in Sub-Saharan Africa
Themes: Tools for enhancing health equity
Authors: Hanson, Kara
Keywords: analysis, causes, control, coverage, economics, interventions, malaria, sub-Saharan Africa, technologies
Year: 2000 Pages: 185
Abstract:
This report analyses and synthesizes information on the cost-effectiveness of malaria control measures in sub-Saharan Africa. It
  • describes the burden of disease due to malaria and reviews existing literature that applies economic analysis to evaluate control interventions;
  • provides details of the cost-effectiveness methodology used. The availability of data restricted the analyses to a subset of interventions to prevent malaria in childhood and pregnancy and to improve the case management of uncomplicated malaria;
  • reviews the literature on the economic burden of malaria and the potential economic benefits to be derived from improved control;
  • reflects on the economic evidence available to underpin the World Health Organization's Roll Back Malaria campaign and identifies key knowledge gaps and research priorities.
