Cost-Effectiveness of Maternal Influenza Immunization in Bamako, Mali: A Decision Analysis
Maternal immunization is a well-established strategy to diminish maternal and neonatal mortality, however it requires a substantial investment, especially in developing countries, to be effective. This article, published in PLoS ONE, reports the results of a study that aimed to determine the cost-effectiveness of maternal influenza immunization through the examination of clinical trial data from Bamako, Mali. The study concludes that maternal influenza immunization in Mali would be cost-effective in most settings if the vaccine can be obtained, managed, and administered for US$1 or less per pregnant woman.
