Economic and disease burden of dengue illness in India.

Shepard DS, Halasa YA, Tyagi BK, Adhish SV, Nandan D, Karthiga KS, Chellaswamy V, Gaba M, Arora NK, INCLEN Study Gro - Am. J. Trop. Med. Hyg. (2014)

Bottom Line: Ambulatory settings treated 67% of cases representing 18% of costs, whereas 33% of cases were hospitalized, comprising 82% of costs.Eighty percent of expenditures went to private facilities.Including non-medical and indirect costs based on other dengue-endemic countries raises the economic cost to $1.11 billion, or $0.88 per capita.

Figure 1: Reported and adjusted number of clinically diagnosed dengue cases, 2006–2012. AF denotes adjustment factor.

Mentions: Combining the results from the Madurai case study and the expansion factor at the national level with the ratio (reporting at state level/reporting at national level) of 0.98 yielded a national expansion factor of 282 (CI: 176–717) for India. Therefore, the projected annual average of dengue cases in India is 5,778,406 (CI: 3,597,174–14,684,499), in stark contrast to the reported number 20,474, as shown in Table 2 and Figure 1.
