A cost-effectiveness estimate of EECC in Tanzania has just been published. Using Covid-19 as a tracer condition, EECC has an incremental cost-effectiveness ratio (ICER) of USD 14 /DALY when compared to current district level hospital critical care. https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s41669-023-00418-x
This look great!
How do you select projects and how are you funded? Do do commissioned work or pro-bono work or both? Are you a buisness or an NGO?
What would be the (ballpark) cost of a 6-week project?
Hot from the press: " Essential emergency and critical care as a health system response to critical illness and the COVID19 pandemic: what does it cost?". Published today in the scientific journal Cost Effectiveness and Resource Allocation.
Yes, the estimated cost effectiveness of 16 USD/ DALYS is for implementing EECC in Tanzania. A link will be set up as soon as the manuscript is published.
The EECCnetwork has been established to facilitate advocacy, implementation and research around EECC. The vision is to reduce/stop deaths that can be prevented by the low-cost, feasible lifesaving care that makes up EECC. The EECCnetwork needs funding to deliver on this, but the cost-effectiveness of such support is, as yet, unknown.
Anyone with questions is most welcome to reach out us!
Thank you, I agree it is promising! The figure "$16 per DALY " comes from Wellcome Trust funded research. The manuscript is currently under peer-review. The setting is district hospital level care in Tanzania.
