A study of household expenditure associated with malaria prevention and treatment was carried out in the town of Bobo-Dioulasso, Burkina Faso.
In January 1992 interviews were conducted with the heads of 150 families concerning expenditure during the past 6 months (corresponding to the peak transmission season).
Families were selected by cluster sampling in the central, intermediate and outlying zones of the town.
Families consisted of 6-7 people on average and had a total average monthly income of US $288 per month.
During the preceding transmission season families had experienced an average of 16 episodes of malaria ( « fever ») and 85% treated this illness with traditional or modern drugs without reference to a health agent or healer.
