IVAC: Costing Dengue Cases and Outbreaks: A Guide to Current Practices and Procedures
December 20, 2012

“In response to the growing need to answer the question of cost in order to weigh the benefits of future introduction of vaccines against dengue, IVAC convened an expert panel in March 2012 to discuss and develop a standardized methodology for estimating costs of dengue in the Americas. The resulting guidelines aim to ensure robust assessment of the economic burden of dengue infections and to make the results of future dengue cost studies more comparable among Latin American countries.”
