Malaria, Economics, and Human Affairs
Malaria Projects at CID
In collaboration with researchers at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, the World Bank, and the World Health Organization, CID researchers collaborated on a book on The Economics of Malaria. Topics to be covered included the economic burden of malaria, cost-effectiveness of interventions, the economics of research and development in malaria, and a series of historical and contemporary case studies.
A few CID researchers had also proposed the establishment of a
Vaccine Purchase Fund, designed to guarantee private sector vaccine
manufacturers of a market if they develop and effective vaccine against malaria.
