Foodborne parasitic diseases in Europe: social cost-benefit analyses of interventions


Robertson, Lucy J; Torgerson, Paul R; van der Giessen, Joke (2018). Foodborne parasitic diseases in Europe: social cost-benefit analyses of interventions. Trends in Parasitology, 34(11):919-923.

Abstract

Social cost-benefit analysis (SCBA) can be used to evaluate the benefit to society as a whole of a particular intervention. Describing preliminary steps of an SCBA for two foodborne parasitic diseases, echinococcosis and cryptosporidiosis, indicates where data are needed in order to identify those interventions of greatest benefit.
