   Abstract = {OBJECTIVE: Evidence from the CURE Children's Hospital of
             Uganda (CCHU) suggests that treatment for hydrocephalus in
             infants can be effective and sustainable in a developing
             country. This model has not been broadly supported or
             implemented due in part to the absence of data on the
             economic burden of disease or any assessment of the cost and
             benefit of treatment. The authors used economic modeling to
             estimate the annual cost and benefit of treating
             hydrocephalus in infants at CCHU. These results were then
             extrapolated to the potential economic impact of treating
             all cases of hydrocephalus in infants in sub-Saharan Africa
             (SSA). METHODS: The authors conducted a retrospective review
             of all children initially treated for hydrocephalus at CCHU
             via endoscopic third ventriculostomy or shunt placement in
             2005. A combination of data and explicit assumptions was
             used to determine the number of times each procedure was
             performed, the cost of performing each procedure, the number
             of disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) averted with
             neurosurgical intervention, and the economic benefit of the
             treatment. For CCHU and SSA, the cost per DALY averted and
             the benefit-cost ratio of 1 year's treatment of
             hydrocephalus in infants were determined. RESULTS: In 2005,
             297 patients (median age 4 months) were treated at CCHU. The
             total cost of neurosurgical intervention was $350,410, and
             the cost per DALY averted ranged from $59 to $126. The
             CCHU's economic benefit to Uganda was estimated to be
             between $3.1 million and $5.2 million using a human capital
             approach and $4.6 million-$188 million using a value of a
             statistical life (VSL) approach. The total economic benefit
             of treating the conservatively estimated 82,000 annual cases
             of hydrocephalus in infants in SSA ranged from $930 million
             to $1.6 billion using a human capital approach and $1.4
             billion-$56 billion using a VSL approach. The minimum
             benefit-cost ratio of treating hydrocephalus in infants was
             estimated to be 7:1. CONCLUSIONS: Untreated hydrocephalus in
             infants exacts an enormous price from SSA. The results of
             this study suggest that neurosurgical intervention has a
             cost/DALY averted comparable to other surgical interventions
             that have been evaluated, as well as a favorable
             benefit-cost ratio. The prevention and treatment of
             hydrocephalus in SSA should be recognized as a major public
             health priority.},

   Abstract = {BACKGROUND: Acceptance of basic surgical care as an
             essential element of any properly functioning health system
             is growing. To justify investment in surgical interventions,
             donors require estimates of the economic benefit of treating
             surgical disease. The present study aimed to establish a
             methodology for valuing the potential economic benefit of
             surgical intervention using cleft lip and palate (CLP) in
             sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) as a model. METHODS: Economic
             modeling of cleft lip and cleft palate (CLP) in SSA was
             performed with retrospective demographic and economic data
             from 2008. The total number of Disability-Adjusted
             Life-Years (DALYs) secondary to CLP in 2008 was calculated
             from accepted clefting incidence rates and disability
             weights taken from the Global Burden of Disease Project.
             DALYs were then converted to monetary terms ($US), using
             both a human capital approach and Value of a Statistical
             Life (VSL) approach. RESULTS: With the human capital
             approach, the potential economic benefit if all incident
             cases of CLP in SSA in 2008 were repaired at birth ranged
             from $252 million to $441 million. With VSL, the potential
             economic benefit of the same CLP repair would range from
             $5.4 billion to $9.7 billion. CONCLUSIONS: Cleft lip and
             cleft palate can have a substantial impact on the economic
             health of countries in the developing world. Further studies
             should be directed at quantifying the economic benefit of
             surgical interventions and quantifying their costs with an
             economically sound approach.},
