Summary
"The aim of this project was to develop a financial model for valuing economic loss caused by neglected diseases prevalent in developing countries. Treatments are available for these diseases but failure of existing mechanisms of health-care finance and delivery (due to poor management including outdated public health programs that are not focussed on the prevailing conditions, use of incorrect medical interventions and corruption) prevent interventions reaching sufferers. The model consists of three data sets: economic productivity of the healthy population, economic productivity of disease sufferers and the costs of medical intervention. This data was used to create a net present value (NPV) for each intervention"--p. 3
