Public Finance of Rotavirus Vaccination in India and Ethiopia: An Extended Cost-Effectiveness Analysis

This article, published in Vaccine, reports on a study that evaluated the potential impact of a publicly funded national rotavirus vaccination program in India and Ethiopia on reducing deaths and household costs due to rotavirus disease. The authors concluded that, in both countries, such a program would lead to a substantial decrease in rotavirus deaths, mainly among poorer populations; it would also reduce household expenditures across all income groups and would effectively provide financial risk protection, mostly concentrated among the poorest.
