  1. A population dynamic approach to the cost-effectiveness analysis of mass anthelmintic treatment : effects of treatment frequency on Ascaris infection.

    Article - En anglais

    This study examines the cost-effectiveness of different frequencies of mass chemotherapy in reducing helminth infection and morbidity at the community level.

    The cost-effectiveness framework utilizes a dynamic model of helminth transmission which permits the effectiveness of treatment to be expressed as some long-term reduction in infection and disease.

    Cost analysis is incorporated into this framework using an itemized cost menu and cost data from an actual control programme.

    The cost-effectiveness of mass treatment is investigated using epidemiological measures considered appropriate to Ascaris lumbricoides infection in both a high and low transmission area.
