Abstract

ITRIA, Alexander et al. The importance of costing and valuation methods in economic evaluations in health: impact on the results of evaluation of meningococcal C vaccine. Physis [online]. 2012, vol.22, n.2, pp. 641-658. ISSN 0103-7331.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-73312012000200013.

This paper aims to present and compare the results of the cost-effectiveness of antimeningococcal C conjugate vaccine, which insert new cost data, collected by personal interviews with families of people with sequels, called "family expenditures" for treatment of sequelae, compared to the analytical model presented by De Soarez et al. (2011), resulting from a research project done for the NIP (National immunization Program) on the feasibility of meningococcal C vaccine in routine vaccination. It is shown that as a result of the inclusion of new costs have changed the cost-effectiveness of the vaccine in question, making the vaccine more cost effective.

Keywords : cost-effectiveness analysis; cost analysis; meningococcal conjugate vaccine; sequelae; family expenditure.
