Abstract:

Outbreaks and emergence of novel pathogens present a challenge in economic evaluations of prevention strategies, due to unusually high levels of risk aversion and uncertainty. Here, we discuss cost-effectiveness investigations and interpretation of economic analyses in the context of outbreak planning and containment, and outline considerations for providers, administrators, patients, and policy makers for infection emergency preparedness response.
