The economics of malaria and its control


Since a review of the economics of malaria conducted in the early 1990s (Mills, 1991), there has been some growth in the literature, although still very little relative to the need for understanding of the economic aspects of malaria and its control. The aim of this paper is to provide a brief review of current knowledge on economics of malaria, and to identify key knowledge and research capacity needs. The paper is structured according to the main categories of economic analysis.
