Projected Impact and Cost-Effectiveness of a Rotavirus Vaccination Program in India, 2008
The authors of this article, published in Clinical Infectious Diseases, aimed to determine the potential impact and cost-effectiveness of a national rotavirus vaccination program in India. They compared the national rotavirus disease and cost burden with and without a vaccination program and assessed the cost-effectiveness of vaccination. Model inputs included measures of disease and cost burden, vaccine performance, and vaccination coverage and cost. The authors concluded that a national rotavirus vaccination program in India would prevent substantial rotavirus morbidity and mortality and would be highly cost-effective at a range of vaccine prices.
