The Economic Cost of Malaria in Brazil

This study will develop a broad methodology to estimate the economic cost of malaria in Brazil, separated by state and type of parasite. Studies that compose the cost, taking into account the agents involved, regional inequalities, losses in productivity and intangible costs are rare in Brazil. This study will use administrative information, domicile surveys in the states of Amazonia and interviews with local government officials. It intends to develop a platform through which it will be possible to calculate economic costs and help shape malaria control policies. Note: This project is 100% funded by Brazil’s Ministry of Health.
