Cost analysis of schistosomiasis is important both in assessing the economic impact of the disease and in identifying the most cost-effective approaches to control.
Economic impact has been examined both within and without the health sector, but there is a lack of measurement of the effects of disease, or the threat of disease, on patterns of production and community development.
The cost-effectiveness of control approaches has been examined empirically and by using static models.
