Decade Of Vaccine Economics IV (field study)
In collaboration with the International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh (icddr,b) and Makerere University School of Public Health (MUSPH), we are generating empirical estimates for the cost of pneumonia, diarrhea and measles in children under-five in Bangladesh and Uganda.
The study collects utilization, cost, and expenditure data for the 2017-18 fiscal year, using a micro-costing approach. Six different surveys were developed to capture these data from the perspective of both the patients’ caretakers and the healthcare system. Facilities from the public and private (for-profit and not-) sectors, from rural and urban settings, and at every level of care were included. This research will help national and local stakeholders make more informed decisions about the true economic burden of childhood diseases—and provide evidence to support ongoing investment in the vaccines targeting these diseases.
